Original art for a buck? You bet!

Listen to this story
A dollar doesn't buy much these days. You could take it to a discount store, or spend it on art. In Saranac Lake, a vending machine that once dispensed cigarettes, is now making it easy to collect original art. The Art Vending Machine is filled with miniature works -- watercolors, prints, photos, poems even theater tickets. All it costs is four quarters. The Saranac Lake Artworks group is hoping the vintage vending machine will help connect members of the public with local artists. Todd Moe found it and spent a buck, or two, at a recent Saranac Lake Art Walk.
