Back for the third year in a row, Pow! Wow! brings art to empty walls in a city by inviting artists to paint walls in the name of spectacular, free art that is accessible by the public and ephemeral in the hands of time.
For the past two years, Pow! Wow! has turned DTLB into one of SoCal’s finest outdoor museums, etching names James Jean, Tristan Eaton, Nychos, Cryptic, Fafi, Low Bros, Jeff Soto and more to the streets of Long Beach for the public to explore.
The ultimate point of Pow! Wow! is to create a global artist collective that seeks to alter the public landscape by providing the world’s leading street artists the largest canvases possible—the walls of buildings—while bringing together creative spirits in a way that is otherwise not possible. It has additionally brought forward musicians, photographers, and videographers to bring their own artistic flair to the event as it has expanded over the years.
Stay tuned for this year’s slate of artists to be announced; dates will be between July 16th and 22nd.
