On June 26th Long Beach Museum of Art and Thinkspace Gallery are also hosting “Vitality and Verve” and have invited 20 international artists including Aaron Horkey, Andrew Schoultz, Audrey Kawasaki, Brendan Monroe, Esao Andrews, Greg Simkins, Hot Tea, Meggs, Nosego and many others to transform both floors of their building with murals and installations.

I’ll be out there for the week so if you live in the area please come and say hello! I’d love to meet you! Follow along here @booooooom or @powwowlongbeach.
