Art-o-mat machines are retired cigarette vending machines, converted to vend art. There are over 90 active machines throughout the U.S. The experience of pulling the knob alone is quite a thrill, but you also walk away with an original work of art. What an easy way to become an art collector! There are around 400 contributing artists from 10 different countries currently involved in the Art-o-mat project.

Ok, a weird thing to Pin. This is a vintage cigarette machine that dispenses works of art, mounted on a block, made to the size of a package of cigarettes. I just have to check this one out next time I'm in Whole Foods, Dallas.
Beautifully Painted Stairs From All Over The World----Seoul, South Korea. In Seoul, South Korea is this amazing flight of steps. Colorful koi fish are painted in orange, red, and yellow tones that stand out against the very vibrant blue hue of the stairs.
