Write on the Walls
The streets of Buenos Aires are known for their creative, political graffiti. Twenty-one Argentine artists of the collective graffitimundo have collaborated to bring that vibe to D.C. with their exhibit “The Talking Walls of Buenos Aires,” which includes this piece by an artist identified only as Mart. The Fridge, 516 ½ Eighth St. SE; through July 28. Free.

Here, There, Everywhere
Artist Peter Coffin specializes in whimsical works, including custom UFOs, which he zoomed over Rio and Poland. “Peter Coffin: Here & There” presents a variety of his pieces — check out an installation of scavenged blue items (one is a Toyota), which mimics the nesting ritual of the male bowerbird. Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Independence Avenue and Seventh Street SW; through Oct. 6. Free.

Wild World
Atlanta-based rockers The Wild have a good ol’ indie-punk-hoedown thing going. The five-piece is loose in the best way — not sloppy, but like they had definitely been partying before hitting “record” for their latest disc, “Dreams are Maps.” They’ve got a little bit of the Replacements in their sound, and even a little bit of the Pogues. 8 p.m. at the Black Cat, 1811 14th St. NW. $10.
