Kevin Lyons, Pow! Wow! Hawaii 2016 Visiting Artist

 

The annual Pow! Wow! Hawaii art festival is just around the corner, running from February 6th-13th, in Honolulu. The 2016 artist roster has been released and it might make you wanna start looking for cheap flights.

If you do end up pulling the trigger and flying out there (maybe the best life decision) you can get tickets to their big closing event concert here. For everyone else, the entire festival will be captured by several photographers on Instagram @powwowworldwide.
