POW! WOW! Antelope Valley Festival
As part of MOAH's Made in America exhibition, Lancaster will take part in a growing series of global events called POW!WOW! As the founder, Jasper Wong describes it, POW! is the impact art has on a person and WOW! is the reaction that art has on a viewer. He adds, together they form POW WOW, which is a Native American term that describes a gathering that celebrates culture, music, and art. This even began in Hawaii and has grown into a global network of artists, gallery shows, lecture series, schools for arts and music, mural projects, concerts and live art installations across the globe.
POW!WOW! Antelope Valley will revolve around a series of murals, artist talks and engagment events. Mural artists include: Amandalynn, Andrew Schoultz, David Flores, Bumblebeelovesyou, Hueman, Julies Eastman, Kris Holladay, Mando Marie, Mark Dean Veca, Meggs and Michael Jones.
