and so the vault door is shut on installation, the prep work begins, and Opening Night for Artomatic X is this Friday, May 29th.
Over 1,000 visual artists have their work on display, and over the course of the 5 week event there will be over 600 performances as well as workshops, lectures, children's activities, film festivals, poetry readings... the list goes on and on.
If you have never been to Artomatic before - shame on you! It's free! Come on! This year the building is literally on top of the Nany Yard Metro stop, and two blocks from the new National's Park.
(for those old skool goths - it is two blocks south of where Nation/The Ballroom used to be.)
Opens this Friday at noon until 2am, and the event is here until July 5th. Open Wednesday-Sunday, see website for hours and special events. www.artomatic.org

When it comes to regional art shows, there is nothing bigger than Artomatic. Last year hundreds of local artists (740, including a tattoo artist!) took over an empty building and showed off their works. There were also children's activities and performances by local musicians. This year Artomatic celebrates its 10th anniversary May 29 to July 5. 55 M St. SE (Metro: Navy Yard). http://www.artomatic.org. Free.
