Artists and volunteers have been busy installing artwork over the past two weeks at 8100 Corporate Drive in Hyattsville, Maryland for the legendary "Artomatic." If you live in the DC metropolitan area, you should definitely check out this nonprofit arts event over the next month! It is a great source of inspiration, no matter which medium you work with.
Artomatic is one of the largest non-juried art events in the United States. It was first held in 1999, inside the old Manhattan Laundry building on Florida Avenue in the Shaw neighborhood of Northwest Washington, DC—hence the original name “Art-O-Matic.” Since then, the event has been held periodically over the years at various locations around the DC-Maryland-Virginia area. When Artomatic is not in session, associated artists and organizers continue networking events on social media.
