At first glance, visitors to the University Library at Governors State University might think it’s now okay to smoke around the stacks.
The new cigarette machine that catches the visitor’s eye is none other than Art-O-Mat, one of many refurbished 1950s and 1960s cigarette machines popping up around the country. Each is unique and has one purpose in its new life: to vend pocket-sized original works of art in the shape of cigarette packages.
