Pow! Wow! Returns To Create Street Art In Long Beach

Here’s your reason to walk around, explore, and find something beautiful.

“Pow! Wow! Long Beach” is one of the most anticipated art event in the West Coast and it all starts tomorrow. Internationally known contemporary artists will be taking over building walls and the city is perfectly fine with it. In fact, this weeklong event has been orchestrated by local businesses and city officials. Each wall was chosen to receive an artistic mural and you’ll be able to visit each site as the work progresses. Hula from Hawaii, Hitotzuki from Japan, and Cinta Vidal from Spain are just a few of the world-renowned artists. For a complete list of participating artists, make sure to check out the Passport. As you visit each mural on the map, make some plans to attend their events as well.
