“Pow! the art of the festival is a journey through the poster art that advertises and celebrates the Powell Street Festival. Through this exhibit, we celebrate thirty-five years of Festival creativity, prosperity and community spirit. Like the Festival itself, the posters have matured – from scrappy upstarts to polished creations.  Many posters designers have gone on to become important artists in the community including Tamio Wakayama, Kaori Kasai, Lotus Miyashita, Lynda Nakashima and Kathy Shimizu.” - JCNM
