There are many upcoming events at UNR at Lake Tahoe. The events are primarily focused on the arts, including the Summer Arts Workshops and June Saraceno’s Faculty Showcase talk coming up in June. UNR at Lake Tahoe has a pretty neat chemical ecology talk coming up: all of that info is included below.

  • Summer Arts Workshops: Expand your creative skillset this summer with Summer Arts Workshops at the University of Nevada, Reno at Lake Tahoe! The Holman Arts and Media Center’s Summer Arts Workshops at Lake Tahoe is celebrating its 40-year anniversary in 2024 with nine exceptional creative experiences across mediums, including painting, ceramics, photography and sculpture. The five-day workshops run June 24 through July 26, 2024. These workshops make the perfect gift for anyone special in your life!

    Situated amidst miles of hiking and walking trails in the Sierra Nevada, you’ll find yourself inspired by the natural landscape. To enroll, visit out Summer Arts Workshops page, and find a workshop you are interested in!

  • The Promise of Chemical Ecology: Dr. Paul Alan Cox has lived for years in remote island villages searching for new medicines. He was named one of TIME magazine’s eleven “Heroes of Medicine” for his discovery of a new HIV/AIDS drug candidate. In his talk, Cox will discuss the importance of chemical ecology research in promoting the development of major medical treatments and addressing the most pressing technological and social needs of humanity.
