Artomatic is HERE!

Artomatic 2009, the 10th anniversary of DC's roaming 'by artists, for everyone' event opens this evening at 5pm.

The address is 55 M Street SE, although if you just head down to the Navy Yard, come to the surface, and look around you won't be able to miss the place! Okay, it's hiding behind the Nationals Stadium, but the 9-story building is decked out in classic Artomatic Style.

This is what the building used to look like - there's so many banners and posters wrapped around the first floor right now, you can barely see the glass!

And now, I'd like to take a moment to apologize for my installation. I was aiming for minimalist (there's more white in my work this year than all other colours combined) but the overall effect is lame. Next year I will spring for better lighting and have learned the lesson that a plain white wall, even if it's what you asked for, is still never what you really want. I'm on the fourth floor, next to Matty Burns' charming astronaut deer.

If you can't make it opening night, Artomatic is open Wednesday through Sunday, now through July 5.
