Incredible opportunity to expose my art to a large, anonymous audience. Creating and selecting the work to display, prepping the site with paint, lights, handouts, and labels was more work than I ever imagined. Artomatic offers emerging and established artists as much or as little of a community as a person could want. It would be really awesome if there was more art creation occurring on-site, but to see 1000+ local artists on display is visual feast.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
Eclectic and serious. High school kids prepping for Art School. Senior citizens with some serious talent. Full-time creatives. Bureaucrats by day, art escapists by night.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Buy a permanent home. Expand to a year-round, ongoing arts community.
How frequently have you been involved with the organization?
When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
