What is ARTOMATIC?
- is a volunteer-run non-profit...that organizes and hosts a large arts festival...in the DC metropolitan area
- usually in a commercial location slated for demolition
- mission: to create community, build audience and expand economic development by transforming available space into a playground for artistic expression."
- showcases creative work in visual art, music, film, performance, and fashion
- socially organic and completely open-entry; there are no juries or curators

Where will it be?
1800 S Bell St, Arlington VA in Crystal City
But where exactly will Tamara be...?
