Yesterday, I kind of skipped out of work early to cross the river into Virginia and visit Artomatic.
An eleven story building whose entire floors are dedicated to art!?!?!
I have gone to plenty of pop up art galleries and artist studio buildings, and Artomatic is pretty much the equivalent of a Smithsonian housing over 1,000 local artists. When you are there, you cannot describe it as any less than astounding or every synonym for the word. Each floor has so many nooks that you literally get lost in art. At all times, they also have a bar on each floor serving refreshments like Izze soda! Fancy. They also have special events on stages found on almost each floor.
The entire experience was incredible!! I spent almost 3 hours there, but I sped through the last few floors. Too many artists to even take pictures of each, but here are some of the highlights from the museum.
Check it out! The month-long festival is only open for a few more days until June 23!!
