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 8 machines in northern New Mexico (Santa Fe and Albuquerque area). @ARToMatNM on Facebook/Instagram

Special Sneak Peek of Meow Wolf Art Complex!

Greetings Art*o*mat® friends and fans! Happy New Year to you all.  I am excited for this year because I will finally get to install my "Dias de los MATos" Art*o*mat® machine in the Meow Wolf Art Complex which will be open MARCH 17th 2016!!! It's located at the old Silva Lanes at 1352 Rufina Circle in Santa Fe.

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to get a sneak peek behind the walls of the new construction and was blown away by how it is all coming along, the sheer creativity vibe that is emanating from the place, and how damn GOOD everything is looking.  Thank you, Vince Kadlubek, for the tour and best wishes for everything getting ready in time for the big Grand Opening.  Buy your tickets here if you haven't already!!!

This Robot sculpture greets visitors arriving from Cerrillos Rd.  His arm moves!!!

The latest sculpture to attack the Meow Wolf parking lot is "TaranTula." Fear her awesomeness!

Vince Kadlubek hosts a tour through the new Meow Wolf Art Complex. Hey! That looks like a lighthouse!

The tree house that the coolest dad in the world never built us. It's here!

It's shaping up to be a forest of wonder and awesomeness. Can't wait to wander!

Our first look at the House of Eternal Return.  You may think you have an idea of how cool it is gonna be.  You don't.

This visitor (me) had an epic time visiting Meow Wolf Art Complex. Don't miss it! 3/17/16!
