♫ We Were Evergreen- Be Like You ♫

As you guys know I love playing tourist in my hometown, there's nothing better than exploring new places and new art work in the neighborhood. This time around Pow Wow art murals are completed in Long Beach and I couldn't help but go for a stroll in the East Arts Village to hunt out these art masterpieces! Pow Wow is a week long art event that started in Hawaii and has expanded into a global network, including in Long Beach. 'Pow' stands for the impact the art has on the viewer and 'Wow' stands for the reaction the art has on the viewer. Pow Wow is also a Native American term describing a celebration of music, art, and culture. Every year artists from all over the world get together to create beautiful artwork all over cities throughout the nation in the most random places including: parks, businesses, the side of apartment buildings, and even underneath bridges! I've only seen a couple around LBC but I'm hoping to seek the rest throughout the summer!
The three art murals above are by:
1. Cinta Vidal- "Backstage"
Too bad I didn't get the name for the last two art murals :/
