After seeing Button-O-Matics around Chicago on visits to the city, Michigan-based artist Shawn Knight decided that having a machine of his own would be the perfect addition to the poster artist pop-up shop he was organizing. 18×24 Detroit, featuring gig poster artists from around the country selling their wares, is set to run this weekend in Ferndale, Michigan.
At the entrance to the 18×24 show will be a Button-O-Matic machine dispensing custom 1″ magnets with artwork from each of the 12 participating artists. “I think it will be a cool way to add another dimension to my poster artist event,” Shawn said. “And will give guests a cheap way of taking home a small piece of functional art.”
Check out 18×24 Detroit this weekend at the DIY Street Fair in Ferndale.
This isn’t the first time one of the 18×24 artists has been featured in a Button-O-Matic! Check out Landland’s design from our 2012 curated series.
