Centered around a week-long event in Hawaiʻi, POW! WOW! Hawaiʻi has grown into a global network of artists and organized gallery shows, lecture series, schools for art and music, mural projects, concerts, and live art installations across the globe. The central event takes place every year during Valentine’s Day week in the Kakaʻako district of Honolulu and brings over a hundred international and local artists together to create murals and other forms of art and a slew of satellite events and educational initiatives held around Kaka’ako.
This year the inspiring event comes to Japan for the first time. For eight days, the public will be invited to see the work of more than 20 artists from Japan and abroad unfold in Bond Street and the surrounding areas of Tennozu Isle in Tokyo’s Shinagawa Ward. Featured events include an Opening Party on 10/17 and Block Party finale on 10/24. Special exhibition at Wag Gallery. Multiple painting events, all day, everyday. Check out the website for details.
