Artomatic 2008 Update!

We have almost 700 visual artists and nearly 150 performing artists. While registration remains open for performing artists, registration is now closed for 2-D artists. In order to accommodate the large number of 2-D artists that still needed space and for those on the wait list we met with the building owners and got permission to expand. Artomatic will now be on the 4th - 12th floors of the Capitol Plaza I Building. While we do not have any more spaces for 2-D there still are some 3-D spaces available.

3-D artist that register now: come to site selection at 10:00 am on Saturday and we will hook you up with 3-D space. Please bring proof of payment and tell the person at the desk that you'd like 3-D space. 3-D Artists: Click Here To Register and Reserve Your Space.
