Since its inception in 2010, POW! WOW! has grown into a global network of artists and organized gallery shows, lecture series, schools for art and music, mural projects, concerts, and live art installations internationally. POW! WOW! has become an integral part of Hawaiʻi’s art and urban history.
In partnership with this exhibit, Bishop Museum’s vast collections, galleries, and outdoor spaces provide an immersive contemporary art experience that bridges traditional culture, contemporary creative expression, and indigenous perspectives. POW! WOW! and its creators showcase their art – in both indoor gallery spaces and outdoors on the Museum’s 15-acre campus, offering visitors a full spectrum of cultural expression, from ancient practitioners to the makers and visionaries of today.
