ST. CLOUD -- If you are an art enthusiast and want to own an original piece of artwork, the Art-o-Mat at the River's Edge Convention Center may have what you are looking for.

On the second floor of the facility, a retired cigarette dispenser has been refurbished to vend pieces of art.

St. Cloud Arts Commission Coordinator Jennifer Penzkover says they have artists from all over the world showcasing their original pieces to add the the machine.

"We have tiny sculptures, wood and ceramics pieces, photography and jewelry," says Penzkover.

St. Cloud holds one of many Art-O-Mat machines across the country. Penzkover says she would love to see more local artist display their work in the machine.

"I would highly recommend going to the Art-o-Mat website if and artist is interested in having their work in these machines," says Penzkover.

The Arts Commission try's to move the machine to different parts of the St. Cloud area. If the machine does know they city will post it's new location on their website.
