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 machines in the Range Cafes in Bernalillo and Albuquerque, at Meow Wolf 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 (8 machines total in northern NM). @ARToMatNM on Facebook/Instagram

Now Featuring NEW Santa Fe Art*o*mat® Artist: Corky Brown

VoodooWell Dolls are here just in time for Halloween! By Santa Fe artist, Corky Brown

Find VoodooWell dolls in Art*o*mat® at the El Centro de Santa Fe location.
I'm so excited to feature a new local artist for Art*o*mat®! Santa Fe's own Corky Brown has created some delightfully fun and cute "VoodooWell" dolls for you to enjoy. The instructions read, "To lift your spirits touch my heart for love, rub my back for comfort, stroke my palm for money, and hold onto the topaz staff for wisdom and strength. Gaze into my eyes and try not to giggle. Squeeze me!" But you aren't going to want to poke this voodoo doll with pins -if you did then the squeaker toy inside would cease to squeak!  These dolls have been placed in my turquoise Art*o*mat® machine located at El Centro de Santa Fe located one block south of the Plaza on Water street. Get 'em while they last. Happy Halloween, everybody!

Corky Brown is the Featured "New Santa Fe Artist"
