About ORNOT Gallery
READY Coffee brings to the Bucktown-Wicker Park area of Chicago a new space to feature local artists whose passion often involves controversial, poignant, and social statements. "We are looking to be a real player in the Chicago art scene," said READY Coffee’s owner, Adam Banks. "We’re used to coffee shops hanging art up on the walls as a secondary attempt to ‘be local’, but we are focused on being local in the best sense of the word. We are looking to really support local artists and we’re not afraid of pushing the edge."
To further showcase artwork, READY Coffee has an Art-o-Mat machine, a uniquely refurbished vintage cigarette vending machine that has been converted to sell small pieces of art wrapped in cigarette boxes. The art sells for only $5. "The Art-O-Mat is the coolest machine that I have ever seen," said Banks. "There is one in the National Portrait Gallery (a Smithsonian Museum) and it’s really a beautiful piece of art in and of itself." Anyone interested in providing art objects for READY’s Art-o-Mat should call the store at (773) 360-7041. Like ORNOT Gallery on Facebook and follow on Twitter. Interested artists should contact Cody at firstname.lastname@example.org.
