You’ve heard the saying, “one person’s junk is another person’s treasure”, or variations thereof. Same holds true for art. What one individual finds stunning or beautiful, another may find hideous or offensive.
I love all types of art, but I’m particularly drawn to murals, be they on garages or bridges, in laneways or vestibules. Very recently, I came upon a feature about “Pow Wow” on Hawaii News Now. Intrigued, I went to the site and was delighted to view an array of stunning, eye-catching Oahu-based murals.
More delightful was discovering that POW! WOW! is a team of artists that “organizes gallery shows, lecture series, schools for art and music, mural projects, a large creative space named Lana Lane Studios, concerts, and live art installations across the globe”. They also coordinate a one-week long event that takes place during Valentine’s Day week in Honolulu.
As I plan to live there one day, this event is now at the top of my list.
