WASHINGTON (CBSDC) — Artomatic 2012 kicks off Friday night.
The five-week, indoor, 11-story art festival features 1,100 artists who converted a 380,000 square feet old office building slated for demolition into a large gallery filled with visual art, music, performances, films and fashion.
Workshops, tours, seminars and other events are also planned throughout the event, which is free to the public.
