Outsider Art in a Box 2006 to 2008

Outsider Art in a Box 
Outsider Art in a Box operated in Vancouver, British Columbia, from 2006 to 2008. It was curated by  Rhonda Simmons who repurposed sanitary napkin/tampon dispensers to vend art. The machines were works of art unto themselves:

A significant difference between Outsider Art in a Box and other art vending projects is (to spite the name) the apparent level of community amongst Rhonda and the other artists who contributed to the project. The vending machines were decorated by Rhonda’s friends and acquaintances, and much content appears to have been created during creative events that she facilitated.
