New Location for Artomatic 2012

Artomatic is changing locations. It’s still going to be in Crystal City, as announced in January, but the location will be a few blocks away from the originally named venue.

Instead of taking place at 2511 S. Clark St, the event will be held at 1851 S. Bell St. Crystal City Business Improvement District President Angela Fox explained that while the agreement to use the Clark Street location was being finalized, Vornado announced plans to replace the Bell Street venue with a new building. Vornado then put forth an offer to hold Artomatic at the old building before it’s torn down.

“This presented an amazing opportunity to showcase the transformation of Crystal City,” Fox said in a press release.

The new location is closer to the Crystal City metro and has an extra 50,000 square feet of space compared to the original venue.

Artomatic is a free event and starts on May 18.
