The Nuwu Art Collective
Culture. Community. Education.
Cultural revitalization and exploration are central themes for those who gather at Nuwu Art, as artists at the studios draw, paint, sculpt, weave, and perform stories inspired by Native American (Paiute, etc.), Indigenous Latin American (Mexica, Nahuatl, etc.), African American, and various traditions.
“My art draws me closer to my Nuwu (Nuwuvi) culture and identity. I have learned much through the lessons of our tribal elders and traveling to visit our ancestral lands and sacred sites in Southern Nevada. . . . My art translates these oral traditions for the viewer. Many pieces operate as a filter that keeps the integrity of sacred information that my people hold dear, while allowing Nuwuvi culture to be shared with a broader audience.”
