Eclectic, crazy, Artomatic 2007 will be open to the public. We suggest that you plan many visits to stave off the possible over-saturation of so much art at one time. Along with over 400 visual artists: there will be music, films, theater, and dance each of the 33 days. All free.
Wapo inside coverage by Jessica Gould on the merits of volunteerism at Artomatic here.
Please check the event calendar for all the details.
All visitors and volunteers who visit Artomatic during hours of operation will receive one hour free parking in the garages at 2121 Crystal Drive and in the garage directly across the Street from 2121 Crystal Drive. You must bring your parking ticket with you when you enter Artomatic at 2121 Crystal Drive and the Artomatic Hosts will stamp your ticket.
