The first time I heard about Art-O-Mat I fell in love with it. Old cigarette machines turned into art machines! Being an ex-smoker and an artist…a “match” made in heaven. Yesterday I visited my first Art-O-Mat in Boca Raton, Florida. I plan to check out the two machines in Miami soon too.
This is the Art-O-Mat machine at the Boca Raton Museum of Art.
A bit blurry, but at this point I found out I couldn’t take any more pictures inside.
So I moved outside to take a picture of the cool Art-O-Mat coin that I paid five dollars for.
Of course I couldn’t get just one! I got four.
Back at home to get a closer look. I love them all.
Cool “lomo” photography from Matt Larson.
A cute handmade book by Sue Clancy and Judy Sullens.
A beautiful porcelain clay necklace stamped with the word ‘art’ stamped on it by Marilyn Kirk.
Cactus Blossom Basket. A unique basket made from cactus blossoms with gems.
Art-O-Mat likes my art and wants it in their machines! yay.
Here’s what I’ve been working on for my Art-O-Mat art.
It’s a series called ‘Speak Love’. Since they come on little blocks I thought it was a perfect size as a reminder to speak love to those around us and also to ourselves. My blank blocks should be arriving soon. I’m excited to get my first batch of 50 out to the machines!
