powwow

Post image for powwow

one of the blogs i frequent for finding really cool photography and artwork is booooooom – and it was through that site that i heard about “powwow.” what is powwow? i think their description says it best:

The beauty of art is most commonly enjoyed during its final stage. All the blood, sweat and tears happen behind closed doors. However, that is where the real grandeur lies. The process. Imagine for a moment a gathering of internationally renowned artists in one place. A place that will allow them to do what they do best: be creative. We give them the tools, the space and the freedom to paint for one week. We make that process open to the public, allowing them full engagement and interaction between the artists and their audience. They witness the creativity in its entirety and become an essential part of the artists’ process. It’s about the breaking down of those closed doors and making art accessible. Seeing creativity happen from beginning to end and bringing people together through art. A POW WOW.

amazing idea, right? the most recent powwow took place in oahu, hawaii, and i wanted to share some of the inspiring photos that came out of it.

I just recently discovered this blog completely random. But I’m in love with the incredible collection of inspiring and creative photos you put up. However, I was spending my weekend catching up on previous entries one after another and it seems the older ones no longer have any photos… Is there anyway these old posts can be reactivated? I really cannot believe I read over a year’s worth of stuff in like 2 days -.-
