Artomatic DC

Artomatic will be celebrating 10 years when it opens this month.  The weeks long event opens May 29th and runs until July 5th in downtown Washington DC.  I find it difficult to believe that the organizers could either top the quality of artist participating or the sheer volume of space that the event occurs in.  If you want to know, you’ll have to stop into the Washington DC Capitol Riverfront area (think Nationals stadium area) at 55 M Street SE.

According to the website, this”free event is an arts extravaganza, featuring paintings, sculpture, photography, music, theater, poetry, dance and workshops.”  All I can tell you is that it’s a total blast and that you won’t be able to see everything in one visit.

One of the best things about Artomatic is being able to brows around and to discover new art and artists to fall in love with.  This year some of the phenomenal artists I know participating are Tim Tate, Matt Sesow and Ed Hahn.

There is no entry fee and most of the works displayed are are affordable and very reasonably priced.  If you want to collect are but don’t have much to spend this is THE place to start.  It’s a fun, non-intimidating environment and on June 13th the Arotomatic is hosting a “Meet the Artist” event which shold be fantastic.
