The Art-o-mat is Coming!
The Cultural Office is bringing the Art-o-mat® machine pictured here, titled "Carnival", to the Pikes Peak region! Art-o-mat® machines are retired cigarette vending machines that have been converted to vend small works of handmade art for $5. Over 100 machines have been hosted across the nation for 20 years. Art-o-mat®
builds public interest in the arts, provides local artists with a new outlet for creativity, and connects our community to a national network of fun! "Carnival" will be hosted at popular destinations for both locals and tourists, and move about every 6 months.
We encourage local artists to apply to join the 300 contributing artists from 10 different countries currently involved in the Art-o-mat® project so that your work can be sold in here in our machine and across the United States!
