The Art-o-mat

I may have posted about the Art-o-mat before. But I just looked at it again recently and see that there are TONS more Art-o-mats sprinkled across the country.

What is an Art-o-mat? Art-o-mat machines are retired cigarette vending machines that have been converted to vend art. There are 82 active machines in various locations throughout the country.

Find an Art-o-mat near you!

You can submit your art (or craft) to the Artists in Cellophane for inclusion in an Art-o-mat, you can read their clear submission guidelines here.

I want one of these to be closer to me, like on a street corner near my house. I want to create my own craft vending machine and have it set up at events like Bazaar Bizarre. I wonder how hard it is to find and convert an old vending machine!?
