Some of these genres include Customized collectibles, Skateboard Art, Stencil, Wheat Paste and 3D Installations.The G40 Art Summit is a unprecedented experience in the art world with its scale and caliber of artists from around the world. This year the summit comes to the city next to the U street corridor taking over an entire 25,000 sqft building and showcasing art on all of it 4 floors.  From over twenty artists showcasing 16’ Murals to traditionally displayed artwork the summit will definitely have sensory overload requiring multiple trips to take in all the treats for the eyes.

The Yards Park
Like no other park in the region, The Yards Park is a new regional waterfront destination, offering a whole new way for local residents to enjoy the outdoors and the river. The 5.5 acre park–the size of about four football fields–includes a ¼ mile long boardwalk along the water and was designed as a series of unique “outdoor rooms” to provide a variety of experiences from the great lawn to the sculptural pedestrian bridge, the waterfall/canal basin to the overlook and riverfront gardens. The Yards Park was built through a public/private partnership between the federal General Services Administration, the District of Columbia, and Forest City Washington and is managed and programmed by the Capitol Riverfront Business Improvement District. Information about the Yards Park can be found at www.capitolriverfront.org
