From the pages of the ANC 6B agenda, set for Wednesday night, comes a potential location for this year’s 10th anniversary Artomatic: Hine Junior High School near Eastern Market. On the corner of 7th & Pennsylvania Ave SE, right opposite from Peregrine Espresso. The property is no longer a part of DCPS, and will be developed by Stanton-EastBanc next year as some office for the Shakespeare Theatre Company. The development will eventually be 510,000 sqft of mixed use office/apartment/retail/restaurant space. This
summer fall, though, it will hopefully play host to a collection of amazing artist projects.
Ryan Jensen from Peregrine gives us some detail in the comments: If Hine is selected as the site, Artomatic would likely be from Mid October to Mid November, with an epic Halloween party.
An update from Artomatic’s Rebecca Gordon: “Veronica is just doing a presentation about our history. At this time there’s no agreement or schedule.”
From talking with the Artomatic folks, if Hine works out it will likely be from mid-October to mid-November with an extra special Halloween party.
Needless to say, with over 75k visitors last year the Hill business community is pretty excited about the possibility of hosting Artomatic.
I like this.
This would be amazingly fantastic.
speculate all day, but artomatic can’t really announce where they will be until they’ve inked it.
