Following up on an extremely successful showing in 2011, the multi-day POW WOW Hawai’i art event had its third annual showing in 2012. Originally conceived in Hong Kong, the event moved to Hawaii to help enrich the local creative scene. The event encompasses a global roster of over 50 local and international artists who created art at Loft in Space + Fresh Cafe and over the streets of Kaka’ako over a six-day period between February 13 to 18, 2012.
Part two of the three part series documenting POW WOW Hawaii 2012 covers the more spiritual aspects of the event. Through the eyes of artists Kamea Hadar, Solomon Enos, Peap Tarr, and Prime, we explore the importance of art and its connection to the land. Using public art and spaces to speak on one’s cultural histories and stories.
This is the finale of the POW WOW Hawaii 2012 video series. Demonstrating the true spirit of the event as a gathering to celebrate art and culture, this video highlights the cultural exchange between the visiting and local artists. As well as our famous luau and black out party at Fresh Cafe + Loft in Space.
