Nuwu Art
by Fawn Douglas

Haw gawda wiyuk? Nuni neyan Fawn Douglas nik Nuwuvi. Greetings, how are you? My name is Fawn Douglas and I am Southern Paiute.

 

I am an artist, activist, and mother who resides in Las Vegas, Nevada. Indigenous knowledge, passed on through storytelling, influences my work, as cultural heritage bridges my people's history into contemporary times.

Our Mission

The Nuwu Art + Activism Complex is a POC-owned and operated space in Las Vegas, Nevada, that works to uplift all communities through strengthening cultural knowledge and identity through the arts, activism, and education. We advocate for the equity of our respective and collective communities through an ongoing process of decolonization and celebration of our rich cultural heritages.  #decolonize

After soft openings of Phase 1: Art Studios (Dec. 2020) and Phase 2: Activist Studios (March 2021), the Nuwu Art team is currently working on Phase 3 of remodeling our next space here in Las Vegas. Be on the lookout for future announcements.  #landback
