There are no criteria to register, and space is allocated on a first-come, first serve basis.

Artomatic is well known for hosting signature events in temporary spaces that enable the arts community, its supporters and community stakeholders to connect. Thousands of people visit the event to discover new art, listen to music, go on dates, grab a drink, experience dozens of all ages workshops, and mingle with the creative community.

This year’s 100,000 square foot space at 1800 S. Bell Street is provided by Vornado/Charles E. Smith and is located along Crystal City’s Art Underground. Launched in 2013 to transform Crystal City’s interior concourse into a vibrant arts and cultural destination, the Art Underground includes Synetic Theater, the 1200-foot long FotoWalk Underground, ArtJamz Underground, the Gallery Underground, TechShop, and Studios Underground which provides work space for two dozen artists.
