About Artomatic 419

Artomatic 419! is the region’s largest non-juried, multi-media arts event. Held every-other year, the 2013 event saw more than 800 visual, performing, and literary artists participate, and nearly 12,000 people attend over the course of three consecutive Saturdays. Artomatic 419! seeks to activate under-utilized space and the local arts community by enlivening buildings in and around downtown Toledo with art, music, poetry, dance, and more. Artomatic 419! is open to any Toledo-area artist on a first-come, first-served basis. Artomatic 419! 2015 will take place at One Lake Erie Center in the former Lamson’s Department Store Building. Artomatic 419! features a multimedia display of area artists and artwork, including painting, drawing, photography, sculpture, handmade items, installations, metal work, and everything in between, plus performances of music, poetry, dance, and dramatic arts.

Artomatic 419! is a program of The Arts Commission’s Live Work Create Toledo initiative, which helps drive cultural tourism in Toledo while fostering economic development and revitalization through the arts.
