PPAC # 27: Scottsdale Restaurant Art

Public art 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. Let your imagination and photographic eye show us diverse samples all over the world.

My Choices for PPAC #27

A couple of weeks ago, I had the privilege to meet John and Lynn Steiner – Journeys with Johnbo in Scottsdale for lunch. We visited a delicious Mexican restaurant called Frank and Lupe’s and ate outside on the patio. You can do that in December in Scottsdale. Public art abounded everywhere. Here are a few samples of what we saw there.

Frank & Lupe’s

The restaurant is hard to find without a co-pilot. It’s in the heart of the Marshall Way Arts District. It’s right off Indian School Way, which is an exit off the 101E Loop on Marshall Way. As you can see, there’s parking right in front of the building. 4121 N Marshall Way, Scottsdale, AZ 85251

Lynn took pictures of old license plates on the wall behind my chair.

Last week, while our former neighbor Carmen was here, Vince got the urge visit an ice cream store in Old Town Scottsdale. Outside the parlor we sat at tables and admired the round planters, some with poinsettias others with ornamental cabbage. Each planter housed a large elf working its own mischief.

Manny threatened to steal this picture for his blog because of the stuffeds – his word for stuffed animals like himself. He particularly liked the saguaro cactus. The large elves scared him a bit because he thought they were laughing at him or trying to ruin the cabbage. Do you think they are up to no good, or just cute?

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.
