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.


What do you get from an Art-o-mat?
The experience of pulling the knob alone is quite a thrill, but you also walk away with an original work of art. What an easy way to become an art collector.

Want to be an Artomat artist?
There are around 400 contributing artists from 10 different countries currently involved in the Art*o*mat project. We are always searching for fresh work.

We have two of these machines in the Seattle area. :)

Cheers,
-Smith

What a cool idea. I wonder if you can get cigarette art? :)

That sounds really interesting. How does the art come out? Is it small art, like the size of a cigarette box?

Is there an update on your submissions?

I love everything about this. I'm shooting a note to our local museums and library (by the way, KC has one of the most beautiful libraries ever) to see if we can get this in our city.

Thanks for commenting on this, Liquidfyre. I had totally forgotten about these. I'm going to make a point this week to get my butt over to the closest Art-o-mat!
