Although we were unable to attend all five days, we were amazed by the art work we were able to see at the Vitality and Verve: Transforming the Urban Landscape exhibit held in Long Beach Museum of Art on Friday, June 26, 2015.

The Vitality and Verve exhibit examines the current developments in the urban contemporary art field. This exhibit consisted of stunning murals and multi-media installations created by the many emerging artists involved in the event. It was amazing to see these artists use their creative juices to change and transform the urban landscape.

Soto Creating His Mural

On the way to to the Vitality and Verve exhibition at the Long Beach Museum of Art we stopped by Jeff Soto's mural at the Long Beach Convention Center.  Jeff was in the midst of completing the mural when we stopped by, with his gallery opening the following night, he was busy getting as much done as he could before heading over to the Vitality and Verve exhibition. Next to Jeff's mural was the Low Bros mural, still in the works.  These were just a few of the many murals created for the event around the city by Jeff McMillan, Benjie Escobar, Cryptik, Hueman, Madsteez, Tristan Eaton, James Jean, Aaron De La Cruz, Fafi, and Bumblebee.  If you guys get the chance, go check it out. It is definitely worth seeing.
