I’ve been meaning to write a post about Artomatic, but I wanted to go first, and now it’s the last weekend and I’m going to miss it. But that doesn’t mean that you should have to miss it too. If you’re looking for something fun and free to do this weekend, I think this is a great option. We went a few times last year and loved it and Lady AWesome went this year.
Artomatic is a yearly festival that features local and national artists. Each year they take over a building and fill it to the rafters with Art of all kinds. There are paintings, sculptures, and instillations. Much of it is weird, some of it is stunning, but all of it is interesting. And, for those of you who are fans of PostSecret, they got their start at Artomatic and they have a display every year.
Admission is free and it’s a great way to spend an afternoon. If you are looking for something to do on your holiday, check out Artomatic.
