Tiny Art Vending Machine
Launched in June 2022, this curatorial project by Kristina Bradt is designed to bring art into the Windsor-Essex community in accessible ways, while supporting and promoting the work of artists and introducing them to new audiences. With the support of City of Windsor’s Arts Culture & Heritage Fund, Kristina received a grant to purchase the vending machine and commission 5 artists to kick off the project.
How it works
Each spin in the machine costs $4 (two Toonies!) and in return you’ll receive a capsule containing a work of art and who the artist is. Each artist created pieces that exist as digital prints, linocut prints, screen printed posters, keychains, clay sculptures, stickers, or literary art objects.
That touch of nostalgia mixed with the idea that you don’t know exactly what you’ll get is a fun and inviting way to discover the work of an artist! 100% of the proceeds generated from the project will cycle back into the fund to continue to commission artists.
Meet the Artists
A vending machine filled with pieces of miniature art from local artists is coming to Windsor. Julianne Hazlewood speaks with curator and brains behind the project, Kristina Bradt, to learn more.
