Rumors & Whispers: Artomatic 2010

>


Artomatic – everyone’s favorite month-long DC art festival – is rumored to be next held (the talk is either this October, or this coming Spring 2011) at the old Hine School adjacent to Eastern Market. The plans for the redevelopment of the former junior high school were outlined last fall, and the site certainly is well situated.

Artomatic organizers officially have not either completely denied or confirmed the rumor… but who needs signed contracts anymore? Start outlining what you, as an artist would include if it were all a go, as approval to actualization time could be short!
