  • Art Whino
    It's possible to find art almost anywhere—from the galleries of a museum, to the side of a building, to the pages of a comic book. It's a little more difficult, however, to find all those styles in one place. That's one of the problems that Art Whino Gallery—a sleek, modern space at the National Harbor—seeks to solve by showcasing artists from around the world that run the gamut of modern high- and low-brow art. The gallery celebrates more than 1,200 established and up-and-coming talents, in part through rotating exhibits that explore new media such as stencil and wheat pasting, screen-printing, and vinyl, as well as more established arts such as burning effigies to ancient gods. An onsite store features modern-art figurines and toys as well as prints. Art Whino doesn't keep all its talent indoors, though: the gallery often helms cultural street festivals and participates in conventions and live arts-and-music events.
