Artomatic Opens Today

The one, the only, the Artomatic opens today through July 5th (schedule below).

The Artomatic folks are celebrating their 10th anniversary of taking over unfinished space and bring multimedia wunderkinds (and wunderdon'ts) to the public. With 9 floors of art, video, music, and classes, Artomatic has something that will appeal to everyone. Last year, I watched old episodes of Pancake Mountain with three six year olds and a pair of teenagers making out before I explored exhibits ranging from the awesome to the mediocre. I ended my day by dropping by a class on burlesque dancing and practiced my shimmy shake moves.

The best part is that Artomatic is entirely gratis! This year it's in the Navy Yard neighborhood... not too much of a hike for those on the green line.
