Hollywood Recreation Center Empowerment Art

Hollywood Recreation Center Empowerment Art

Hollywood Recreation Center and Clark County Public Art present the 2nd Empowerment Art!

The Empowerment Art project’s goal is to inspire the community by spreading empowering messages through art. The project consists of an artist or art team to host workshops at the recreation center with the kids from that community. During the workshops, the artist or art team will talk to the kids about self-empowerment and help raise each other up through art. The artist or art team then takes inspiration from the workshops to create designs that will be installed in the bathroom facilities as vinyl wraps.

The art team chosen for the Hollywood Recreation Center is CoZiLV. The team consists of Gina Parham, Nicole Espinosa, and Jean Munson. They “strive to cultivate accessible safe spaces for marginalized communities and encourage the creation and consumption of self-published content through meet-ups, workshops, and the festival itself.”

In their workshops, the kids were invited to learn how to create their own mini ‘zines, mood board collages, and self-portraits, all while focusing on messages that uplift others and themselves.

After the workshops, CoZiLV compiled the kids’ artwork and made ‘zines for the kids to share with their family and friends. With inspiration from the kids, CoZiLV designed empowering art to print as vinyl wraps.


In August of 2022, the final designs were installed in the main bathrooms of the Hollywood Recreation Center. The artwork is currently available for viewing.
