What is the Nuwu Art Collective?
Fawn Douglas conceived the Nuwu Art Collective, which sprung from the group of talented artists who have spaces at the Nuwu Art Studios. These Las Vegas creatives all value community building and creating safe spaces for youth and families to explore their cultures, as they use their unique skills to decolonize through the arts and education.
Cultural revitalization and exploration are central themes for those who gather at Nuwu Art, as artists and guests at the studios draw, paint, sculpt, weave, and perform stories inspired by Native American (Paiute, etc.), Indigenous Latin American (Mexica, etc.), African American, and various traditions.
