It took a year of fundraising and volunteering from some very dedicated DCA members and artists to bring Art-o-mat® Downriver in March of 2016. We are proud to host this machine containing artwork from artists all over the world!
Art-o-mat® machines are retired cigarette vending machines that have been converted to vend art. There are over 100 active machines in various locations throughout the world. About 400 contributing artists are currently involved.
