Sadly, @ArtBoxNY will be going into storage while the Queens Museum is closed for renovation this Summer. Be sure to visit before 6/3 to stock up on the fun-sized art! Or buy online here if it’s a chick magnet/mini artist’s book emergency.
We’ll see you in October -with an expanded selection of little books- at the bigger, better Queens Museum. (Click through for more views of the expansion project, as well as info on the museum’s history.)

“Coke gave out 10,000 cans of soda during the campaign, which is part of the brand’s larger mission to associate its product with happiness. “Coke has always been a brand that’s about positivity and optimism, and we’re always talking about how we can provoke just a little bit more happiness in the world.”

“Dream Big 2” by Rejin Leys (2013)
This is a 1 inch book that is available in @ArtBoxNY, my vending machine that lives at the Queens Museum. “Dream Big 2” is an unlimited edition relief printed accordion book, and is part of a project that reflects my interest in tchalas, books that give lottery numbers for images you might see in your dreams.
This month’s chick magnet colors
“A rundown but functional old vending machine stands alone in the Viewpoint Gallery at Plymouth College of Art. Every now and again, without warning, it springs into life - spewing out free packets of crisps for gallery visitors. The machine has been modified. It no longer functions in the conventional way - at the whim of snack-hungry students - but instead now finds itself in the control of outside forces…”
Red chick magnets are back in stock
It’s always best to visit the @QueensMuseum for an ArtBox refill on a beautiful sunny day.
