Artomatic is Back for 2024!

Great news for the DC-area arts scene! Artomatic will be back next year! In its 25-year history, Artomatic has become a DMV institution. It has provided an alternative venue for local artists, offering an art festival that’s part art fair and part performance madness, but always is the best open art show around! (Open means that there are no jurors or judges and that every artist who wants to do it, can do it!) Besides heaps of visual arts of all types, the fair showcases local Dance, Theater, Spoken Word, Music, Film, Story Telling, Workshops, and whatever else DMV creatives can incorporate into the month-long event. And because it doesn’t use judges, curators or hierarchy, Artomatic is as democratic as an art show can get.

The projected dates for the event is March 8 to April 28, Wednesdays through Sundays at 2100 M Street, Washington, DC (DC’s West End between the Dupont Circle and Farragut North Metro stops). Plans include two DJ stages, at least one film space, a small theatre (for plays and readings), and a dance stage/open performance space. Want to see the space? Join the ARTOMATIC mailing list and join the next tour!

Artomatic is a nonprofit organization, and there is no admission fee for the public to attend the show. They note that they “rely on volunteers to serve as staff who promote and advertise events, welcome the public, manage security, and perform a variety of other duties to ensure a successful experience for both artists and audiences.” Go online to Info on registration – click on this link:
