Our Art-o-Mat is the brainchild of artist Clark Whittington of Winston-Salem, NC, who retools cigarette vending machines, re-incarnating them to vend small boxes of real art for a mere $5, creating an accessible way for everyone to interact with artists.


The SSA’s Art-o-Mat features a selection of works by 20 different artists, many from the San Antonio community, but others from around the U.S.

The Art-o-mat is located on the Navarro Campus, open from 9 am -5 pm Monday through Saturday and 11 am - 4 pm Sunday. You can find more of these machines at other art-loving places all around the country!
