POW! WOW! HAWAII 2020


POW! WOW! Hawaii Celebrates its 10th annual festival in Hawaii, and will surpass 50 total festivals worldwide this year. Since its inception in 2010 in Hawaii, POW! WOW! has grown into a global network of artists and organizes gallery shows, lecture series, schools for art and music, mural projects, a large creative space named Lana Lane Studios, concerts, and live art installations across the globe. The Hawaii event which is the longest-standing annual POW! WOW! takes place during Valentine’s Day week in February in the Kaka’ako district of Honolulu, and brings over a hundred international and local artists together to create murals and other forms of art. Taking place between February 7th and the 16th, artists and musicians will gather at the Kaka’ako neighborhood and create all new murals and installations. Outside of it murals, POW! WOW! will produce two exhibitions curated by Thinkspace and Spoke Art, two artist talks featuring world renown artist Tristan Eaton and Jay Howell (creator of BOB’s Burgers), indoor soccer matches with Kicks to the Pitch and Paradise Soccer Club, break dancing battles with the Endless Summer Jam, the POW! WOW! School of Music and POW! WOW! School of Photography, as well as a concert finale block party alongside Honolulu Night Market. In 2019, the festival was held in the following cities: Honolulu, Hawaii; Washington D.C.; Long Beach, California; Worcester, Massachusetts; Venice, Italy; Rotterdam, Netherlands; San Jose, California; and Okinawa, Japan with plans to not only continue work in these cities, but to also add Singapore and Cleveland to the list.
