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.
Last week for PPAC #26, I had a marvelous response from all of you. 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 our attention. They are all worthy of a second or third look.

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.
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.

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?
Now it’s your turn.
