"Since ancient Greece, vending machines have been around giving out such things as books, food, socks, and even poetry. As a child, you may fondly remember vending machines as those magical boxes that gave out candy and toys at the grocery store.
Now, we want to use them to bring art to the public. Never been to an art gallery? We'll just bring the gallery to you. Inside these vending machines are tiny works of art created by real, working artists living in Conway. This is just our tiny way of making art more accessible and inclusive." --Dr. Gayle Seymour
The Give Art a Turn vending machines will be at UCA Downtown on Friday evening, September 30 and during Art in the Park on Saturday, October 1.
