On May 10, from noon until 4 p.m., Artomatic will be sponsoring a blood drive to benefit the Blood Donor Center at Children's National Medical Center. The drive will take place on the grounds of the Capitol Plaza I building, site of this year's Artomatic. The Capitol Plaza I building is located at 1200 First Street, NE, Washington, DC, 20002 (New York Avenue Metro stop, M Street exit). Children's National Medical Center will be bringing a bloodmobile to collect donations on-site.
"Artomatic is a community arts event, and this is one of the many ways that we are giving back to our community," said Artomatic artist Kerri Sheehan, who is helping coordinate the blood drive.
