POW!WOW!: LONG BEACH CALIFORNIA, USA
July 20 @ 8:00 am - July 31 @ 5:00 pm
POW!WOW! in Long Beach has a mission to bring happiness and colour to everyday life in their community. For the past three years, they’ve played host to many artists and they now have 90 murals spread around Long Beach.
“POW!WOW! Long Beach is not only a mural festival but a learning experience for artists, volunteers, and community.”- Local artist Jason Keam
The artist mix for the festival is about 50/50 local to external and they want to create an atmosphere where the artists learn from one another. They get local community involvement by hosting events in small local venues and sourcing locally made merch.
