In late October 1996, Yuko Nii founded the non-profit Williamsburg Art & Historical (WAH) Center based upon her Bridge Concept. That concept envisions a multifaceted, multicultural art center whose mission is to coalesce the diverse artistic community, and create a bridge between local, national, and international artists, emerging and established, of all disciplines. Thus through the international language of art we come to understand each other to create a more peaceful and integrated world. The WAH Center is a force for peace and understanding and its concept is incorporated in its acronym: WAH in Japanese means peace, harmony, and unity.
The WAH Center distinguishes itself among local art organizations as a creative laboratory for innovation in the visual, performing, and theatrical arts. Accordingly, WAH Center makes great works by living artists of diverse groups (local, national, and international) accessible to diverse audiences by using a variety of innovative approaches to the fine art & performing art using science and technology and uses the interpretation of art to express opinions about environmental and social concerns.
