Scattered across the US are refurbished cigarette machines called Art-O-Mats. If you put in five dollars, you get a piece of original artwork. Like those little machines at pizza parlors, you don't know exactly what you're going to get.

My friend and I found an Art-O-Mat near us and put in a few tokens each.

I ended up with a necklace and a little block with a monster painted on it.

I wanted a model robot, but they were sold out. That's always my luck with vending machines.

The Art-O-Mat is a pretty awesome idea and it led us to find another art gallery nearby. It's always nice to know that there's a bit of culture in our humdrum suburban neighborhood.
