Monday Morning Mirth


OH! For the Love of MONKEY! my wallet, yes does open…

This little buddy found it’s way into my knapsack at the Retro @Rosco Street Fair Saturday.

It is a refrigerator magnet made from a bottle cap.

It is also a COLLAGE!

That’s right, Ms. Jeanmarie Petro painstakingly, lovingly, cut out the little shapes needed to make this one-of-a-kind MONKEY SHINE!!!


YOU can find Miss Jeanmarie at WEENER WARE, the studio she runs with her cool partner, Barbara Tinger!

WW will also be at the Bucktown Arts Fest
August 28-29, 2004


the Renegade Craft Fair
(Wicker Park, home of our very own KIP!!!)
September 18-19, 2004

If you’re visiting Chicago this Summer
go to the Chicago Cultural Center at 79 E Washington
and get some Weener at the Art*o*mat!


“What is an Art*o*mat?”

“Created in 1997, Art*o*mat machines are retired cigarette vending machines that have been converted to vend art.

Currently, there are 71 ACTIVE MACHINES in museums and various locations throughout the country.”

Find an Art*o*mat near you.

    When you say it found a way into your knapsack, I assume you did pay for it first. =)
    Very cute!
    BTW, the link for the Art-o-Mats isn’t working.

    We can’t post URLs to the comments (it helps to keep the spammers away) but if you go to, you’ll find there’s a link from their home page to the list of locations.
