Art-O-Mat to dispense small works of art by BR artists

Did you know that within walking distance of the Garden District you can purchase original artwork for just $5? The Baton Rouge Gallery at City Park is home to the Art-O-Mat, a refurbished cigarette machine that now dispenses miniature works of art by local artists.\r\n\r\nJust purchase a token from the gallery office, slip it in the coin slot, and pull the knob beneath the artist who’s work catches your eye. Current artists whose work is available from the machine are Scott Blake, Karen Waiksnis DiSorbo, Pam Brekas, Dennis Wells, Zach Rhodes, and Alex Wilson.\r\n\r\nSome of the art is printed on metal, some is decoupaged onto a block of wood, and some is wearable, like Rachel O’s Fabulous Whimsy Fabric Button Earrings.\r\n\r\nAs the machine says, “Purchasing Art is not illegal for children of any age.”
