To bring exposure to the underground art movement, artist collective Art Whino brings its “G40 Art Summit” exhibition to Richmond this month. The street festival features more than 500 artists, music and a 10-block mural project showcasing 13 leading practitioners from around the globe. In addition to the large-scale murals, there will be exhibits in pop-up galleries along the Art Walk, including the premiere of “Weapons of Mass Change,” a traveling group show to benefit international humanitarian missions. Each artist will transform weapons into unique works of art. The event also includes art workshops, DJ nights, a battle of the bands and movie screenings. The opening reception takes place along the First Fridays Art Walk Broad Street on Friday, April 6, and runs through May 4. www.artwhino.com/2012g40
