(July 26) Not your average vending machine
You’ve seen vending machines that sell drinks, that sell snacks, maybe even the rare machine stocked with packs of cigarettes or iPods. Well, this weekend you can add to that list because there’s a retrofitted cigarette vending machine at the American Art Museum that sells works of art. For one fiver you can purchase an “artpak” of your choice, and if you show up between 1 and 4:30 in the afternoon you can meet the folks behind the machine and watch them create the works found on its shelves.

(July 26) PM @ The TM
The Textile Museum celebrates its Dragons, Nagas, and Creatures of the Deep exhibit tonight with PM @ The TM. You’ll have a chance to meet a few of the good-willed dragons on view in the galleries and be terrified by a less-friendly water monster when the museum screens the 2006 South Korean sci-fi comedy The Host.

(July 26-Sept. 24) Waterworld
Northwest Washington’s Old Print Gallery has monster-free water on display through late September. Sixteen local, national, and international artists portray personal and universal interpretations of the life-enabling liquid.
