Yesterday, AM had the opportunity to stop by the Long Beach Museum of Art (LBMA) for what’s shaping up to be an epic exhibition. Put on in collaboration by Thinkspace Gallery, the people behind POW! WOW!, and LBMA, the main attraction of Vitality and Verve: Transforming the Urban Landscape are the on site installations and murals. While there, we enjoyed seeing the finishing touches and beginnings of works from Audrey Kawasaki (seen above), Aaron Horkey, Brendan Monroe, Cryptik, Esao Andrews, Greg “Craola” Simkins, Hot Tea, James Bullough, and Nosego.
Make sure you make plans for the opening on June 26th, the same week as POW! WOW! Long Beach, as artists Alex Yanes, Andrew Schoultz, Brandon Shigeta, Jeff Soto, John S. Culqui, Low Bros, Meggs, Nychos, Saber, and Tristan Eaton are also scheduled to add their contributions.
