|This 20 column cigarette machine from the 60's will soon become an Art*o*mat®|
I have exciting news to share: In 2018 I will have two more "members" added to my "Family" of Art*o*mat® machines here in northern New Mexico. I am pleased to report that Albuquerque will be home to both of these machines: one will go to the Range Cafe (Cottonwood) restaurant and the other (pictured above) will go to the Anderson-Abruzzo International Balloon Museum.
Installation dates for the new machines are undetermined but they will be here in time for Balloon Fiesta (October 6-14). Artist Jennifer O'Kelly has begun work on the Art*o*mat® for the Balloon Museum and it will be covered with her whimsical hot air balloon paintings. I'm not quite ready to reveal the artist for the Range Cafe machine but stay tuned for more info.
Until then... Art*o*mat® is seeking NEW ARTISTS. If you or someone you know is interested in creating art for these repurposed cigarette-machine-turned-mini-art-galleries please visit the Artists' Submission Page at artomat.org and learn how you can market your art by becoming an Art*o*mat® artist.
