What is Art*o*mat®?

What is Art*o*mat®? Created by Clark Whittington in 1997, Art*o*mat® machines are retired cigarette machines that have been converted to VEND ART! For only $5 you can collect paintings, drawings, sculpture, photography, jewelry, glass, mixed media and more -all the size of a pack of cigarettes. There are over 100 active machines in various locations throughout the country. Victoria Brown (that's me), and El Centro de Santa Fe are proud to host the first machine in New Mexico which debuted in February 2013. There are now machines in the Range Cafe in Bernalillo, the Standard Diner in Albuquerque, in the Meow Wolf Art Complex in Santa Fe, the Inn of the Governors in Santa Fe, Caffe Greco on Canyon Road in Santa Fe, and the Balloon Museum in Albuquerque.

Art*o*mat® in stunning neon! Find this sign next to Art*o*mat® at Range Cafe!
What's cooler than neon? Am I right?! Just adding to the vintage awesomeness that Art*o*mat® provides. This bitchin sign, representing Art*o*mat's royal crown logo, was created by Robert Randazzo of Absolutely Neon in Albuquerque.  It's going to help light the way to my "PlumMAT" machine in the foyer of Range Cafe in Bernalillo so go and have a looksy!
