A Pack of Surprises

What a great idea if you love collecting original art like I do!! In 1997, Clark Whittington transformed a out-of-work cigarette machine into a vending station for his photographs. A decade later, the savy result is the Art-o-mat. Over 400 artists contribute original work that is packaged and vended for $5-$7 each at more than 80 machines located throughout the country. There is even one located here in Austin at the Mercury Design Studio. If you can't find a machine near you, order a collection of 10 packs of art in an Art-o-carton ($100) online at
