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.

Meow Wolf Opens! A Look Inside:


Art*o*mat® Machine, "Dias de los Muertos" and his robot friend greet guests at the front door of Meow Wolf



Here I am happy to meet the robot next to my Art*o*mat® inside Meow Wolf.

Today I got to visit Meow Wolf for the first time since it opened to the public this weekend. I'm speechless.  THIS PLACE IS SO FRIKKIN COOL!  My lousy pictures do it no justice. Seriously.  Drop what you are doing and go check this place out.  The exhibit is called The House of Eternal Return and it's a time-bending cross-dimensional mind-eff of the best kind imaginable.  Once again I'm proud to live in Santa Fe and be part of something so awesomely artfully amazeballs. Art*o*mat® fits right in here.  Go see for yourself! Open Wednesdays-Sundays 10am-8pm and later on Friday and Saturday nights. 1352 Rufina Circle, Santa Fe.


Inside the exhibit: The outside of the House of Eternal Return (sorry for the darkness of the pic).

I loved this black and white cartoon-y room.

OMG the tree trunks have eyes!!!

Who doesn't love black lights?

Here's the music venue portion of the exhibit. Lots of upstairs viewing areas and a nice sized dance floor below.
