Truckee Cultural District Selected to manage Truckee Tahoe Airport District’s “Art at the Airport” Program

Truckee Cultural District is excited to announce a new opportunity to engage with the community by showcasing over 100 artists annually in the popular public art venue at Truckee Tahoe Airport. Truckee Cultural District enters the New Year as program manager following a competitive process with support from the Nevada County Arts Council and in partnership with Truckee Arts Alliance. The first exhibition will open on January 25, 2024. 

 According to Marc Lamb, Aviation & Community Services Manager, Truckee Cultural District was chosen for their Curatorial Team approach with artist selection focused on local and regional talent, opportunities to highlight and mentor student artists, and feature artists that are underrepresented. 

Truckee Cultural District will be responsible for presenting four exhibitions a year for the next three years. The Curatorial Team will include Truckee Cultural District Program Manager Kellie Cutler, Truckee Gallery owner and professional artist Piper Johnson, Public Art Commission Truckee Youth Art Representative and professional muralist Molly Moore, and a staff representative from Nevada County Arts Council. 

“This is an incredible step forward for Truckee Cultural District, which is charged with nurturing authentic arts and culture opportunities, increasing the visibility of local artists, and promoting socio-economic and ethnic diversity through culture and creative expression”, says Cutler. Truckee Cultural District partners include Nevada County Arts Council, Truckee Arts Alliance, Town of Truckee – Public Art Commission Truckee (PACT), Truckee Downtown Merchants Association and Truckee Chamber.
