For those of you who are lucky enough to live near one, I say go find yourself an Art-o-Mat! Admittedly, most of them are located in the Eastern portions of the United States, but there are a few to be found in other locations, dotted here and there. I even believe there is one overseas, but for the life of me can't recall where...
More to the point, though, is that when you are lucky enough to come across one, you will find inside lovely little pieces of art, the size of a pack of cigarettes. That's because the man who created this whole idea uses refurbished cigarette machines to dispense these treasures~ a much wiser choice! And when you put in your token into an Art-o-Mat machine, you will receive works from such dedicated artists as Took Gallagher,J.M. Guptill, and KT Goodlove. All these young women are amazing. Art-o-Mat is amazing, giving people an affordable bit to take home with them, but it also gives artists a place to get noticed.
