We’ve been getting some interesting questions about our Art-O-Mat and I wanted a chance to tell everyone more about “Artie”, so serendipity strikes again!

What color is Artie – Artie is a vintage fire engine red machine with black pinstripes.  He is a little over 5 feet tall and very handsome.

What kind of art comes out – each piece is an original work of art approximately the size of a cigarette package.  Art includes jewelry, paintings, jokes, sculpture, etc.

Do I get to pick the type of art – No, but that is part of the charm.  You put in your token (approx. $5.53 – including tax) and get a wonderful surprise when this work of art dispenses a small work of art for you.  They really are quite amazing in their quality.

Where do the artists come from –  Artists submit their work to Clark Whittington, subject to a submission process which is posted at www.artomat.org

To learn  more, please tune in to KWMU Radio’s “CityScape” this Friday from 12 to 1 pm to hear an interview with Clark and me about our upcoming November 20 event.  We will also be interviewed on KTVI-TV “Fox2 News in the Morning” on Wednesday, November 20 at 8:50 am.  We are looking forward to seeing all of you on November 20th!
