Sense-Sational Overload

Picture an office. A really big office space that takes up an entire floor. Now picture it without furniture – but instead - every corner, nook & cranny is curated with captivating contemporary art.


Then, try to visualize not one, but 5 floors of this art, each dedicated to artists hailing from California, New York, Washington DC, and the rest of the world, such as artist Aniekan Udofia of DC.

On top of that, imagine yet another floor filled with live painting and entertainment – last night it was music by DJ Sonny Cheeba and melt-in-your-mouth cuisine courtesy of Elephant Steps and Friends.

State of the Art Summit

It’s the first day of March and do you know what that means? Goodbye February, Hello, G-40!  As in, G-40: The Summit, a contemporary art exhibition featuring the works of over 500 artists from around the world – all under one roof.

Starting today, Crystal City will play host to G-40, an artistic interpretation of the G-20 political summit.


On display for the full month of March, the exhibit will also feature musical and visual performances, lectures, and live painting.

Brought to you by the creative forces of Art Whino, the Crystal City BID, DC MagazineVornado and Yelp – the mission of G-40: The Summit is to share and expand the New Brow genre of contemporary underground art.

Here’s a sampling of featured artists:
