Artomatic is a non-profit, volunteer-run 501(c)3 organization focused on creating and hosting art festivals approximately every 12-18 months in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. The event organizers are well-known for transforming empty spaces into vibrant arts communities. Each festival showcases a wide-variety of visual, creative and performing art, including music, film, performance and fashion – all FREE. Anyone can show art at Artomatic, it is non-juried and art is selected on a first-come, first serve basis. The mission of Artomatic is to create community, build audience and expand economic development by transforming available space into a playground for artistic expression. The events are funded in part by the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities (an agency supported by the National Endowment for the Arts).
