Grand Opening of G40: The Summit

Our friends at Art Whino will be kicking off what’s appearing to be one of the more spectacular art exhibitions in the district, which will feature street artists from around the country and across the world.  If you’ve ever visited Art Whino, you already they’re not your typical art gallery that features more tourists than artistic intrigue.  It’s a bit underground, but with featured exhibitions such as the upcoming G40 event, it’s gaining a full head of steam and becoming reliable source for art, culture, and inspiration for the community.
