Dear Friends of AUTOMAT,
We hope this letter finds you well and safe at home. April 2020 marks the 5th anniversary of AUTOMAT. We wish that this email was to invite you to our space to celebrate this occasion, but we know social distancing is our best weapon to fight COVID-19!
So to mark the occasion, we want to send a huge digital THANK YOU to all of you that have supported us for the last 5 years! Since its beginning, AUTOMAT has been home to 20 members and put on 46 exhibitions that showcased over 150 artists from Philadelphia and beyond. We've collaborated with other collectives from near and far and have made many lasting friendships. Thank you for being a part of our story and making memories with us!
We had planned major fundraising initiatives for this April to mark our 5th birthday but feel we should delay them for a later date. However, if you have the means to donate today we would like to extend a very special thank you. Your contribution will help us weather this difficult time.
You can set your own gift amount or contribute $100 for a free, limited edition AUTOMAT tote bag (pictured below) designed by former member Sam Jones. Please follow the link below for payment options, which include PayPal and credit card.

We will keep you updated on when we will reopen and hope to launch some online exhibitions in the interim to keep your eyeballs full of art! Stay connected through our social media pages - Facebook + Instagram.
Thank you again and we hope to see you all real soon!!
Your Friends at AUTOMAT
