Arts and events serving the Lake Tahoe community

From internationally recognized speakers to hands-on workshops, we're proud to partner with the Lake Tahoe community to provide engaging events in a beautiful setting.

Writers in the Woods Literary Speaker Series

Intimate readings and workshops with acclaimed authors in all genres. Community members and students can meet and exchange ideas with well-known poets and writers from all over the country. Past speakers have included Rebecca Makkai, Nick Flynn, Tim O’Brien, Patricia Smith, Denise Duhamel, Tobias Wolff, Kelle Groom, Lola Haskins, Brenda Hillman, Bob Hass, and many others.

Exhibition spaces

The galleries at the University of Nevada, Reno at Lake Tahoe focus primarily on progressive emerging artists. The work ranges from traditional media to site-specific installations. This rich programming brings art that is both exciting and challenging to the college and local community.

Both our rotating exhibitions and monthly arts programming are always free and open to the public.
