Artomatic Is Coming Back! (PHOTOS)

WASHINGTON -- It's been too long -- three years -- since D.C. had its last Artomatic. And now it's back!

This year's festival will be from May 18 to June 24. It'll be hosted at the Transwestern Presidential Tower in Crystal City.

Jonathan Fischer at Washington City Paper reports that Artomatic organizers are promising that this will "be the biggest Artomatic yet" -- more than 300,000 feet to devote to art both bad and good, music, film, tattoos, food, drink and Peeps.

To which we say: huzzah, and take that Matt Yglesias!

And now, a slideshow of Artomatics past.
