Weekend Pick — Artomatic 2012

Here’s something I wanted to alert people to if they didn’t already have it on their radars … Artomatic 2012. Artomatic opened to the public on May 18th and runs through June 23rd.

According to the Artomatic Website, “Artomatic 2012 is a month-long art festival in the DC area that is “by artists, for everyone.” It is absolutely free to the public.

This year’s event is in a former office building that’s slated for demolition. It features 10 floors of art by more than 1,000 artists: Visual art, music, performance, film, fashion, and more. Workshops, tours, seminars and other events are held all month long.”

This event happens every few years, with the last event gathering in 2009. This year, Artomatic is at 1851 S. Bell St. in Crystal City, a block from Metro. For those of us living on the Metro Green line, this is an easy trip.

Below are the days and times that they are open.

  • Wednesdays and Thursdays: noon – 10 pm
  • Fridays and Saturdays: noon – 1 am
  • Sundays: noon – 5 pm
  • Closed Mondays and Tuesdays
