Artomatic service day

So last night was my first service day at Artomatic. For those who don’t know, to be part of Artomatic you have to volunteer 3 days. It’s a great idea and it really helps build community. 

So the first job was to do a trash walk through. A couple days ago I came in and taped up my wall with where all my art would hang.

But on my walk through, I got to my space to see blank walls with tape all over the floor .

I’m thinking my wall must have been paited with some kind of oil paint. Well, no big deal. I put down some orange crayon markers. It should be fine. But I’m a little concerned because I’m hanging a lot of my work with 3m Velcro and hangers. 

Also, if you are familiar with Artomatic, you know artist usually get to paint their wall, still true this time for about half the building. My wall is a no-paint wall. Fine with me, I can’t even get around to painting the walls in my house.
