1 building + 11 abandoned floors + 1,300 artists = Artomatic 2012 in Crystal City, Virginia. I have been excited to attend for weeks and over the weekend I was able to spend several hours getting lost among all of the amazing artwork, photography, installations, sculpture, performance and much more. With so much too see and different performances, speakers and art projects to participate in you could certainly attend many days and still not see it all. It really was a special experience to be a part of and the volunteers were friendly, welcoming and enthusiastic. Artomatic is still going on through June 23 so add this to your list of "must attend" art venues this month and it's free!
