The African American Museum and Cultural Arts Center in the Historic Westside
This proposed museum will be an anchor cultural facility celebrating the contributions of African Americans to the Historic Westside, Las Vegas and beyond. It will be designed to connect the many and varied existing historic and cultural facilities in the community while expanding storytelling opportunities through collections and programming.
Take a survey about the proposed museum.
While no determination has been made on the size or scope of a new facility, the intent is to connect existing historical assets such as the Walker African-American Museum & Research Center and the Miller Street Building to a new facility or facilities that can tell a comprehensive story of the African-American experience. In addition to museum facilities that may include standing and rotating collections, under exploration is the development of a cultural arts center to incorporate African American art and artists of all varieties.
