) is a three-week
showcase of the work of more than 1,000 artists, musicians,
poets, and performers in the Washington, DC, area. It is being
held at the former Children's Museum building at 3rd and H
Streets in North East DC. The building was originally a
convent for the Sisters of Mercy, and is going to be converted
into condominiums after the exhibit.
The group met at the entrance of the exhibit and each person
was given a pin to denote their group. The 5 groups were:
pigs, hands, monkeys, fish, and crabs. The organizer misused
craft supplies to create these pins. Each group was assigned
an "ambassador." The ambassadors were given maps of the
exhibit and their duties included: starting on the correct floor
for that group, making sure no floor took up more than a half
hour, and making sure everyone made it to the Cabaret Stage
at 6 pm. Before splitting up, the entire group gathered in a
circle and each person introduced himself/herself and gave a
description of his/her favorite work of art .
The five groups split up and toured the cavernous five floors
of the exhibit. At 6 pm, everyone gathered at the Cabaret
Stage. The plan was that each person would talk about his/
her favorite work at Art-o-matic, but little did we know that
) was paying a visit to
Art-o-matic at that very moment. It was very loud, so the group
decided to enjoy the randomness of dancing drunk
santas...what better way to get into the Christmas spirit?
The organizer hopes everyone had a good time and is
looking forward to planning other art-related MOC
