BANK on ART, literally

Toronto art lovers can now access contemporary artwork in the unlikeliest of places: ATMs. Merging art and technology, the project, called BANK on ART, is aiming to increase the general public's exposure to contemporary art through common activity. The work appears on the screen before and after each banking transaction, giving the individual an pleasant change in their usual mundane routine.

So far the only ATM that showcases the artist's work can be found on 952 Queen St. West, but plans are already underway to add another one in Yorkville.

For those of you who aren't near the Toronto area you can get a preview of the displayed art on the BANK on ART website.
