Old Vending Machines Are Used To Dispense Art Instead Of Cigarettes
An artist launched an initiative to sell pocked-sized pieces in vintage cigarette vending machines to connect more people with art
As an artist, it can be challenging to get your work out there. Dutch artist Ro-Nalt Schrauwen, who started the art initiative Pakje Kunst, came up with a creative way to do just that: putting miniature pieces of art inside old cigarette vending machines.
Schrauwen, inspired by an artist who used vending machines in a similar way, has already installed several cigarette dispensers in various bookstores around the Netherlands. There are currently 19 of them, with three more on the way, giving customers who might not spring for a large work the chance to purchase pocket-sized pieces. People in disciplines from painting to writing are using this method to dispense their art. So instead of getting cigarettes, one can enjoy a slice of culture.
