Previously known as POW!WOW! Antelope Valley, Antelope Valley Walls Fest has returned for its fourth installment, bringing international and local artists together to adorn the community with vibrant murals. These new murals will accompany previous murals painted in Lancaster in 2016, 2018, and 2020, adding 20 new murals for the Antelope Valley community. All artists will paint throughout the week leading up to the festival. Founded in 2010 in Hawaii, this project and event are part of a larger global event whose mission is to celebrate music, culture, and art.
