Here is some of the first video content after this year’s POW! WOW! LONG BEACH mural festival – great coverage of the new mural by The Draculas (Jeff McMillan + Gary Musgrave) who painted in the courtyard at The Westin Long Beach, shot & edited by Scott Nichols of Sickboat Creative.
This week’s T-shirt of the Week is by LA’s own DRTY and it celebrates “fine spirits and boos.” Get it?
Tonight the new Vitality and Verve group exhibition presented by POW! WOW! and Thinkspace Gallery opens up at LBMA. It’s not public, tickets or membership are required. Open to the public as of tomorrow. It’s absolutely amazing. Deets for this evening’s event are here and the general exhibition info is here.
Please pardon the lack of posts lately, I’ve been quite busy with POW! WOW! LONG BEACH 2016 this week. The Mayor of Long Beach, Dr. Robert Garcia, officially launched the event yesterday morning, in front of the Tristan Eaton and James Jean murals from last year’s event, at The Varden hotel. Local papers Long Beach Post and the Press Telegram both covered the event.
You might have noticed I haven’t posted anything in a couple of days, as I’ve been so incredibly busy setting up for POW! WOW! LONG BEACH 2016 next week. Some artists have already begun painting their murals, which is exciting. You can follow that on Instagram if you want. In other news, this design prototype Spector, my buddy Jeff Hamada posted recently, really appeals to me. Apparently Wired called it “Shazam for fonts.” Via Booooooom.
