Photos – Opening Weekend Highlights

Here are some spooky (and not-so-spooky) sights from opening weekend at Artomatic. Some artists and volunteers really got into the “spirit” of the weekend. If you’re looking for the art of a specific artist and want to plan ahead, you can look in the Artomatic Directory and accompanying maps.

It’s hard to do it justice in photos, but Artomatic is an awe-inspiring experience that must be fully understood in person. The volume and variety of artwork here is absolutely mind-boggling. Enjoy this preview—more photos to come…
