The opening celebration for Vitality & Verve: In The Third Dimension at the Long Beach Museum of Art presented in collaboration with POW! WOW! Long Beach and Thinkspace Gallery sold out of tickets and set the mood for the summer. Smiling faces, fascinated spectators, and passionate art enthusiasts explored Vitality & Verve: In The Third Dimension engaging with the artist and the art.

The public and museum members enjoyed a myriad of installations and murals created with various materials ranging from fiber, wood, plastics, acrylics, resins, cardboard, textiles, paints, ceramics, paper,  and reclaimed materials.  Last summer’s exhibition, Vitality & Verve : Transforming the Urban Landscape saw over 22,000 visitors during its run and we’re hoping this latest show beats that record.

Below is a visual tour of Vitality & Verve: In The Third Dimension‘s opening celebration After Dark at the Long Beach Museum of Art, photos courtesy of Birdman Photography.  The presentation of Vitality & Verve: In The Third Dimension is made possible by the generous support of The Port of Long Beach, JetBlue, Pasadena Art Alliance, the Bauer Foundation, and Thinkspace Gallery.
