These are retired cigarette vending machines that now sell little bits of art for 5 bucks a pop. Samples of the art can be found under the artists name here.
I'd show you photos of the art but I don't have any. Not because I was worried about the copyright issues and derivative works but because that night I kept calling it the Crap-O-Mat and I think my neice, Sara, rightly wasn't letting me see anything she bought.
Gentle Viewer Ali B and an email exchange or two from Clark Whittington, The National Bureau Chief of Art*O*Mat has reignited my interest in these machines. When you go to the website Art*O*Mat go and check out the machines as well as the guidelines for artists and then remind yourself that it's art for 5 bucks from a machine! This is not art for money. It's art for art's sake. Try finding THAT in most places. You'll be seeking these things out.
