I’m working on some new HankiePankie prints for the Art-O-Mat Swap Meet coming up this weekend at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in DC. I had a lot of fun meeting other Art-O-Mat artists and supporters at the 10th anniversary event and I’m looking forward to celebrating the Art-O-Mat’s birthday in style. The event is open to the public, so stop by if you’re in the area.
Art-o-mat® 15th Anniversary Swap Meet
It only comes around every 5 years. You are invited!
Luce Foundation Center for American Art – Third Floor
Smithsonian American Art Museum
8th and F Streets NW, Washington, DC
July 28, 2012, 1:00-4:30pm
Open to the public, this is a rare opportunity to meet some of the artists who keep Art-o-mat machines across the country filled with small, affordable works of art. There will be various workshops throughout the afternoon. Anyone from the general public is invited to make their own artwork to keep or swap with friends! Local musicians will perform, and a cash bar will be available during the program.
The Smithsonian American Art Museum’s Art-o-mat is a retrofitted cigarette machine that sells original artworks for five dollars. Artists interested in being involved in Art-o-mat, please log on to http://www.artomat.org
Hope to see you there!
