Original pocket-sized art for just $5! The Art-O-Mat is an easy and funky way to start building your own art collection.

The Art-O-Mat is a retired cigarette vending machines converted to dispense original and affordable art, making pieces personal and approachable. The original Art-O-Mat® was developed in the 1990s to encourage art consumption by expanding access to artists’ work. Now there are over 100 active Art-O-Mat machines across the country.

Not only is the machine fun and slightly addicting (although much less than cigarettes) – it aligns perfectly with Access Gallery’s drive to make art accessible to everyone! The pocket-sized artworks are great mementos, affordable pieces, and meaningful decor. Our machine features works from our ArtWorks artists that learn to create sellable art and view their pieces as economic opportunity.

We are located in the heart of the Art District on Santa Fe, filled with multiple galleries, schools, museums, and artist studios. Our neighborhood is a continual reminder of the equalizing power of art, breaking down social barriers and becoming a place where young adults with disabilities feel welcome to create, question, and learn from each other.
