An Akron native and Buchtel High School graduate, Woodrow Nash creates three dimensional art featuring his passion to elevate the human spirit. His early endeavors in NYC featured his artwork on jazz labels for Father Hines and Cat Anderson and later brought him home to illustrate for Goodyear Aerospace Corporation and American Greetings Corporation. Today, his sculptures, created here in Akron, are trademarked as "African Nuveau" and received with national acclaim.
