Pow! Wow! Antelope Valley returned for its third year in Lancaster, California this past month. From September 5th through September 12th a dozen talented artists added to the 31 murals and installations, created during 2016 and 2019 editions of the festival, which can be discovered around the city.
In blistering heat and under a smoky sky, these twelve amazing artists: Allison Bamcat, Carlos Mendoza, Carlos Ramirez, Casey Weldon, Chloe Becky, Gustavo Rimada, Huntz Liu, Kim Sielbeck, Manuel Zamudio, MJ Lindo, Spenser Little, and Victoria Cassinova; brought their vision to life and infused the streets of Lancaster with their distinct creative voices.
For the safety of the artists and the general public and in compliance with the Los Angeles County Health Department’s COVID-19 protocols, no public events were held during POW!WOW! AV. While the expansion of the Antelope Valley’s outdoor museum is exciting and visiting the murals offer some escape for all that have been trapped indoors these past several months, we ask that you wear a mask while touring the new murals.
The Lancaster Museum of Art and History is dedicated to strengthening awareness, enhancing accessibility and igniting the appreciation of art, history and culture in the Antelope Valley through dynamic exhibitions, innovative educational programs, creative community engagement and a vibrant collection that celebrates the richness of the region.
Pow! Wow! Antelope Valley is made possible due to the support and sponsorship of the Lancaster Museum of Art and History and Thinkspace Projects from Los Angeles, California.
Special thanks to the City of Lancaster, Destination Lancaster, The BLVD Association, Signs & Designs, and all who help bring POW! WOW! AV to life.
