Presentation: William Bauer and Fawn Douglas

William Bauer (History) and Fawn Douglas (Art) were featured speakers with Jack Malotte, an accomplished visual artist who focuses on Great Basin landscape, contemporary political issues faced by Native people, and environmental activism. Bauer proposed some historical/political context for Malotte's work. Douglas provided readings of some of Malotte's artworks and interviewed him from the stage. The event explored the motivations for Malotte's work and celebrated his imagination, which has fueled five decades of paintings, prints, drawings, and textiles. The event, which took place on campus this week, was presented by the Native UNLV Collaborative, which consists of students, alumni, employees, and friends who share the goal of increasing the visibility and representation of Native Peoples at UNLV. Douglas is a graduate student.
