The Vision Gallery and Gallery at CCA are home to two of Arizona’s four Art-o-mat vending machines that instantly conjure up vivid memories of bars and bowling alleys to much of our clientele. The machines are retired cigarette vending machines that have been repurposed to sell cigarette-pack sized pieces of art. Art collectors can purchase art from around the country out these machines for the very affordable price of $5. The Art-o-mat was invented in 1997 by artist Clark Whittington, and they first came to Chandler in 2009. Inventory changes regularly, so check back often.
