For the past three years, celebrated muralists have flocked to Long Beach to leave their mark on bridges, walls, and buildings during the annual “Pow! Wow!” event. For one week every summer, Long Beach residents and visitors engage with the “Pow! Wow!” artists and watch the installations take shape. WalkShop participants will ride Long Beach Bike Share through Downtown, by historic neighborhoods like East Village and Wilmore, and along the waterfront to explore Long Beach’s street art and innovative bike infrastructure. Along the way, City staff will discuss how the annual “Pow! Wow” event contributes to cultural and economic vitality in Long Beach.
