Experience history, art, architecture and culture along the famed Truckee River Corridor. Walk the paths of pioneer wagons that crossed the Truckee Meadows in the late 1840s. See hidden neighborhood treasures, landmark trees and architectural gems from mansions on the bluff to brick bungalows in Reno's little Italy. Most tours begin at the Riverside Artist Lofts located on the corner of the Truckee River & Virginia Street. Tours last about one hour and 45 minutes.
Imagine having the chance to visit artists' studios not ordinarily open to the public. Imagine privately viewing these artful treasures and having the opportunity to purchase many of them at a great price.
Artouring brings you inside the enjoyable, rewarding and often challenging process of creating fine art with exculsive behind-the-scenes tours of the Reno-Tahoe artistic community. Artouring has selected the most fascinating and eclectic professional artists for tours that the artful traveler will not want to miss. You will visit working studios, not normally open to the public, to meet artists and discuss their backgrounds, their inspirations, and their work -- everything from oil paintings, bronzes, jewelry, tapestry, basketmaking, stone carving, calligraphy and photography.
Artouring also includes a visit to the Nevada Museum of Art along with lunch at the museum's fabulous Cafe Musee.
