I found this website yesterday and got really excited. I had to share it with you! Have you heard of Art-o-Mat? A group called Artists in Cellphane got a bunch of retired cigarette vending machines and turned them into art vending machines! How amazing is this idea??
People can put $5 into the machine and they get a little piece of art. There are Art-o-Mats all over the world. There is even one in Austin! I want to go see it and take a picture for my project. I might have to get a little piece of art while I'm there, too!
The machines alone are pieces of art that I would love to see.
I'm thinking about trying to submit a project in the spring to see if I can get accepted. I was going to make ACEOs but now I think I want to try something completely new and special just for Art-o-Mat. I probably won't be accepted and if I do it won't be a big money maker, but it sounds like a really fun project to be part of and I could share my work with a whole new group of people. I'm going to keep my ideas a secret because I still haven't figured it all out, but I will be sure to tell you when I'm ready to submit something. :-)
