marriage is a bunch of underwear on a cactus plant: artomatic 2012 June 11th, 2012
Val and I went to Artomatic yesyerday afternoon in Crystal City and spent some time perusing floors 8 and 9. It took about an hour and a half of wandering before we were exhausted by the visual barage of artwork, so we decided to go see the Peep exhibit and then call it a day. As expected, we saw all sorts of crazy, weird, and wonderful. My favorite exhibits are usually the ones by travel photographers, but I am also generally drawn to things that involve robots, maps, or puppies. On the other hand, displays with babies or aliens (or both), mutated body parts, and trash are the ones I just skip right by. There were plenty of things from all of the aforementioned categories. Something for everyone really.
I did find this artist, which I found both humorous and cute, but I didn’t take any pictures of his work while we were there. Somehow, I miraculously remembered his name well enough to look it up online just now, (or maybe Google already knew what I was looking for anyways…) I kind of love the bossy squirrel. I think there are squirrels like that in our backyard, chewing up the string lights… jerks.
Hopefully I can find another time to go back before Artomatic ends and see some of the other floors of work. YAY Artomatic!
