This experience is unlike any other museum visit one has
ever had. This exhibit, created by Clarke Whittington of Winston-Salem, consists of artistically
redesigned, former-cigarette machines which contain miniature works of art.
These small art pieces, which may include sculpture, jewelry, drawings,
paintings, etc., can be purchased for $5.00 by inserting money/token and pulling
a lever. Whittington has placed Art-o-Mat machines in The Smithsonian
American Art Museum and Whitney
Museum among others. This
is the first exhibit of the Art-o-mat in Iredell County.
Hours:Tuesdays- Thursday 10-7:00, Thursday-Fridays 10-5:00, Saturday, March 2 10:00-2:00.
