Virtual Educator Evening: Las Vegas Artist, Justin Favela on Creating Inclusive Spaces

Wednesday November 3

4:00 PM  –  5:30 PM

Educator Evening is a FREE professional development series hosted virtually each month (excluding January and July) offering state-approved professional development hours for participation.

Join us in November for a conversation with artist, Justin Favela. Based in Las Vegas, Favela is known for his large-scale installations and sculptures that manifest his interactions with American pop-culture and the Latinx experience. As a multidisciplinary artist, Favela explores his own identity while exploring notions of authenticity and place using familiar and accessible materials to make large scale installations, sculptures and paintings.

Justin Favela has exhibited his work both internationally and across the United States. He is the recipient of the 2018 Alan Turing LGTBIQ Award for International Artist. Favela hosts two culture-oriented podcasts, “Latinos Who Lunch” and “The Art People Podcast.” He holds a BFA in fine art from UNLV.

This program is hosted virtually on Zoom and is always free and open to all PreK-12 educators in Nevada.

Sponsored by the Robert Z. Hawkins Foundation, Bank of America and the Nell J. Redfield Foundation.

STEAM education programs at the Nevada Museum of Art are sponsored by Tesla and Waste Management.
