POW! WOW! Antelope Valley Returns this September

POW! WOW! Antelope Valley returns for our third year this coming September 5 through September 12 in Lancaster, California. International and area muralists will adorn the walls of the city, adding to the 31 murals and installations created during the 2016 and 2018 editions of the festival. Founded in Hawaii, back in 2010, POW! WOW! is a series of global events that celebrate culture, music and art.

We are excited to share with the Antelope Valley community the art of eleven amazing creatives this coming September. Taking part will be Allison Bamcat, Carlos Ramirez, Carlos Mendoza Casey Weldon, Chloe Becky, Gustavo Rimada, Huntz Liu, Kim Sielbeck, Manuel Zamudio, MJ Lindo, Spenser Little, and Victoria Cassinova.

As the new murals come to life, be sure to explore our existing murals and installations from Aaron De La Cruz, Amandalynn, Amir Fallah, Amy Sol, Andrew Hem, Andrew Schoultz, Bumblebeelovesyou, Carly Ealey,  Christopher Konecki, Dan Witz, David Flores, Ekundayo, Emily Ding, Hueman, Isaac Cordal, Jeff Soto, Julius Eastman, Kris Holladay, Lauren YS, Mark Dean Veca, Meggs, Michael Jones, Mikey Kelly, MOUF, Nuri Amanatullah, Scott Listfield, Spenser Little, Super A, Tina Dille, and Tran Nguyen.

For the safety of the artists and the general public and in compliance with the Los Angeles County Health Department’s COVID-19 protocols, we will not be holding any public events 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 as they come to life. Please respect the artists’ working space and safety by keeping well away from their work zone and do not distract them with conversation. We thank you in advance for your understanding and support.

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.

Thinkspace Projects was founded in 2005; now in LA’s Culver City Arts District, the gallery has garnered an international reputation as one of the most active and productive exponents of the New Contemporary Art Movement. Maintaining its founding commitment to the promotion and support of its artists, Thinkspace has steadily expanded its roster and diversified its projects, creating collaborative and institutional opportunities all over the world.

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 helped bring POW! WOW! AV to life.

For the fifth iteration of Thinkspace’s special exhibition in tandem with POW! WOW! Hawai’i, we have curated a group of just over 50 local and international artists to act as a small survey of the burgeoning New Contemporary Art Movement for art lovers on Oahu and the world over via social networks like Instagram, Twitter and Facebook.

“With roots firmly planted in illustration, pop culture, comics, street art, and graffiti, put quite simply the New Contemporary Art Movement is art for the people,” – Thinkspace co-founder Andrew Hosner
