It is a celebration of culture, music and art. “POW! WOW!” – a native American term, now describing a gathering of artists and creatives.

Starting from a one-week festival in Hawaii, “POW! WOW!” has built a global network of artists, galleries and creative community spaces around the world now – also in Long Beach.

The transatlantic diablog was on location of the place’s streets, checking out artists and their respective works of art.

2016 artists included creatives like Dave van Patten, Gail Werner and Jim Coke.
