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!
