“POW! WOW! IS A GATHERING OF CONTEMPORARY ARTISTS THAT ENGAGES WITH THE BROADER COMMUNITY IN THE PROCESS AND CREATION OF ART AND MUSIC.”
Each February, I look forward to POW! WOW! Hawaiʻi. It’s one of the coolest events here in Kakaʻako. I believe that it started out at Fresh Café in 2011? One of the founders is a friend from Kamehameha, Kamea.
After breakfast at Karen’s Kitchen, I began my tour. I especially enjoy seeing the artists at the completion of their murals.
They are appreciative of the support and are always willing to chat.
Looking forward to seeing the completion of this mural near Ala Moana Blvd. by the car dealerships. Curious to see what happens to the eyes…
POW! WOW! headquarters is at Lana Lane Studios. This is where you can pick up the passport and purchase some of the merch. I only got a sticker for my skateboard. This year’s shirt & cap look really nice.
Half way through my exploration, I took a refreshment break at Village @ SALT.
This one is across from Mother Waldron Park.
On my way home, I was able to meet up with my friends from Wooden Wave.
Had an amazing time checking out the murals and meeting the artists. This is one event that I will always support….
