A handful of coins and instant art

Listen to this story
Saranac Lake is taking the arts to the streets again during its summer "Third Thursday Art Walk" tonight. One of the attractions you'll find downtown is a vintage vending machine that's making it easy to collect original art. The Art Vending Machine is filled with miniature works -- watercolors, prints, photos, poems, theater tickets and music.

Like a lot of things, the cost for the original art has gone up, from one dollar last summer to two dollars this year. That's eight quarters for an original work of art. 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 last summer and spent a handful of quarters at an Art Walk event.
