This is one of the coolest things I've seen in a long time. Having an art vending machine so that artists can get their work out to the public without having a show is genius. The retro look of the old cigarette machine helps to draw in people while the reasonable prices of the a piece, only $5, makes it so anyone can purchase one. I bought a couple pieces and found that I wanted to buy more and more. It's addicting. I will definitely be buying more and maybe even sending some of my own work in to be put into a machine.
