Vending Art in Small Boxes

An artist in Germany has arranged to sell small original art pieces very inexpensively by stocking renovated vending machines. Over 100 artists are participating and each box contains information about the artist, a website,and something about his/her style. The art can be found in bars, public buildings, and walls and cost less than $3.00 each. Lars Kaiser’s goal is to bring art to “non-art” places or to people who don’t frequent museums and galleries. I find this idea very intriguing and wonder if it can be applied to books, if it hasn’t already been.
