I had a marvelous response from all of you on last week’s PPAC #11. I want to say thank you to each of you for joining along in our challenge. Here are the featured bloggers for this week.  Their posts really grabbed Cee’s attention. They are all worthy of a second or third look.

Please check out my PPAC (Photographing Public Art Challenge) to check out more of what this challenge is about.

  • Seasonal Displays

I will be hosting next week’s challenge.

Acker Park Wall Art

Do you remember my wonderful Prescott Loo with the View post two weeks ago? Acker Park consists of around 80 acres of natural parkland near downtown Prescott. The park has an easy one-mile loop trail, picnic areas, a wall mural depicting the history of the land, and, of course, the Loo with a View.

Far left-hand part of the wall,

The wall doesn’t cross any piece of the property with the purpose of separating it from from something else. Small, green, plaster hand prints comprise the far left portion of the wall with a few artistic artifacts added for interest.

The wall steps down as you look towards the right, and the hand prints become fewer, and the artifacts become more varied.
Created by students from Mountain Oak Charter School in 2002, it seems that the art work is arranged from youngest artists to older artists.
The wall ends where the trail begins. It seems to welcome all to some happy hiking. Don’t forget your walking sticks.

Acker Park is located at 421 S Virginia St, Prescott, AZ 86303

Enjoy your Labor Day week. Stay safe and healthy.

Hi, I'm Marsha Ingrao, a retired educator and wife of a retired realtor. My all-consuming hobby is blogging and it has changed my life. My friends live all over the world. In November 2020, we sold everything and retired to the mile-high desert of Prescott, AZ. We live less than five miles from the Granite Dells, four lakes, and hundreds of trails with our dog, Kalev, and two cats, Moji and Nutter Butter. Vince's sister came with us and lives close by. Every day is a new adventure.
