POW! WOW! recently concluded its annual street art festival at Long Beach, California. One of the highlights of this year’s installment is the organization’s highly-attended partnership with the Long Beach Museum of Art. Curated by Thinkspace Gallery, the ongoing showcase entitled “Vitality and Verve III” spotlights a total of 21 works by acclaimed international artists. Participants include Bordalo II, CASE, Evoca 1, Sergio Garcia, Herakut, Hush, Jaune, Leon Keer, Koz Dos, Spenser Little, Fintan Magee, Dennis McNett, Drew Merritt, Michael Reeder, RISK, SEEN, Amy Sol, Super A, Juan Travieso, Dan Witz and Lauren YS.

“Their impermanent installations are tangentially activated, transforming the ground floor and second-floor ocean view gallery of the LBMA into an immersive ephemeral playground for the senses,” explained the museum.

Tour the exhibition rooms above and then head over to the Long Beach Museum of Art’s official website to learn more. “Vitality and Verve III” is on view until September 9. In other art news, check out Atlanta-based artist Greg Mike’s recent large-scale murals.
