This is week 6 of PPAC which my co-host, Cee Neuner is hosting. I wanted to combine it with #Tree Squares so I don’t miss a single day of July. I found some amazing public art, visible right from the highway going our of Prescott.
Public art is encompasses any form of art you see in a public place, large or small, statues, murals, graffiti, gardens, parks, etc. The art should be visible from streets, sidewalks or outdoor public places.
I had a marvelous response from all of you on last week’s PPAC #5. Cee picked out the featured bloggers and says “thank you” to each of you for joining along in our challenge. Their posts really grabbed Cee’s attention. They are all worthy of a second or third look. Next week I will choose the PPAC Featured Bloggers from Cee’s participants this week.
My goal for this month for #Tree Squares was to start at home in Prescott, AZ and spiral away, highlighting trees farther and farther away from my home. However, since the Public Art I found is in Prescott, I came back home for #TreeSquares #26. Today trees are falling second to Public Art, but they mesh well.

Prescott Drive #2: Outside Phippen Art Museum
Highway 89 out of Prescott carves through the Granite Dells. As it emerges into a round-about, Phippen Art Museum beckons from the right side. Today my friends Linda and Becka and I drove over there to check out the sculptures visible from the road, and some that you might miss going by quickly.
Looking across Highway 89 the majestic Granite Dells jut abruptly into the air. Pictured is the parking lot for The Constellation Trail through the dells. It’s quite a stunning walk for a later post.
Peeking out from the front porch, occupants could clearly see the imposing statue of Chief Nez Pierce, and quake.
I’ll leave you with a shot of the Chief gazing into the future. I doubt if he could have envisioned this sight in the future.
See you all on Friday for PPAC #7 here on Always Write. Also, I’d love to have you get ready for #WQWWC topic of EXCITING coming up on Wednesday or link your response to this week’s #WQWWC to RELAX.
HAVE A GREAT WEEK AND DON’T FORGET TO CHALLENGE – PHOTO & WRITING CHALLENGES OF YOUR CHOOSING. 🙂
