Art Whino returns in 2013 for the fourth edition of the G40 Art Summit. This year Art Whino will be teaming up with Suite Nation to present a month-long, multi- experiential Art Summit with musical performances throughout the month.  This year’s theme is the “Art of transformation” and the exploration of reclaimed spaces and objects.  The location of this year’s Summit will be an all surrounding art experience with every inch of the space covered with awe inspiring works of art.  The building itself has a rich background. Completed by James A. Boyce over a 12-year period in 1875, it exemplifies an eclectic mix of Victorian and Romanesque architectural styles combined with Gothic Revival and Queen Anne elements.  The building has remained vacant for two decades and is now coming back to life inside and out, following its external and internal revival this past fall and spring.
Art Whino commissioned Atlanta based artist HENSE to complete a full building mural wrap resulting in the building’s current lively, colorful and graphic appearance. Following this intervention, Art Whino teamed up with Australian mural artist, MEGGS, to create a mural that covers what will be the performance space on the second floor of the building; the mural covers the entire room from floor to ceiling with bursts of primary color and stylized imagery in bold black outlines.  Just like in past years, the G40 will be a massive exhibit featuring over 300 artists and 500 works from around the globe.  The exhibition will feature canvas work from artists, installation walls, installation rooms and full size 10’ murals. The sheer size of the exhibit will require multiple visits to take in the full experience. Events throughout the month will allow visitors to return to the space and continue their exhibition experience, including various opportunities to meet featured artists and attend a wide variety of programming, from musical performances to social events.
