Art-o-mat machines are retired cigarette vending machines that have been converted into machines that dispense art. You can see a video here. There is also a faq on the website at www.artomat.org.

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.

This is good. Art is much better than cigarettes.
