We also have to mention that Artomatic opens this Friday, May 29, even though it isn’t exactly in the PQ. Many artists from the neighborhood will have their work on display (and for sale) at the 5 week long arts festival. More information is at Artomatic.org. The festival is located in the building directly above the Nationals ballpark metro entrance (Navy Yard metro stop on the green line)
