Los Angeles’s NBC 4 covered the Mural Magic happening down in Long Beach this week for Pow! Wow! Long Beach. Camera crews interviewed artist James Jean bringing to life the story behind a historic LBC hotel. View the full report and video on the NBC website.
The opening of ‘Vitality and Verve: Transforming the Urban Landscape’ is only a week away. Murals are being finished while new ones are beginning inside the Long Beach Museum of Art. The current state of LBMA is like navigating through a quarantined building, an intense ventilation system pumps in fresh air for the artists and drop cloth covers the doorways and floors. Andrew has been Periscoping his trips to the museum which can give you a sense of the different world the artists are working in and creating. The Long Beach Museum of Art is right on the coast and the second-floor muralist have the treat of natural light flooding from windows that look out onto the beach.
The ‘Vitality and Verve’ exhibition at the Long Beach Museum of Art is made possible via a collaboration with Thinkspace and Pow! Wow! and will be open to the public 6/27 through 9/27. Tickets are still available to come and kick off the event with us June 26 from 7 -10 pm with Long Beach Museum of Art After Dark.
