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.
As the new year is about to begin, Cee and I met this week about the future of PPAC. As all of you know, Cee has an abundance of challenges that she hosts, and she had decided to step away from co-hosting PPAC on a regular basis. We will still see her as a participant occasionally and a guest host when I’m away, but for now she is taking a much-needed break. She redesigned our logo as a going-away present, and we will have her dynamic photo as the co-founder of this challenge. Thank you, Cee for your constant encouragement and advice as we launched this amazing photo challenge together.
The Photographing Public Art Challenge will continue to run from Friday at 9:00 am Phoenix time to the following Thursday at noon. Thanks again to all of you who have made this a fun challenge for both of us for over six months. You can check out my PPAC page for additional details.
Last week for PPAC #28, I had a marvelous response from all of you. I want to say thank you to each of you for joining along in PPAC. Here are the featured bloggers for this week. Their posts really grabbed my attention. They are all worthy of a second or third look.
My Choices for PPAC #29
Once in a while you find benches that are worthy of being called public art. We found this bench sitting outside of a fast-food restaurant where I least expected something artsy. As you would expect, it’s a little worn in places, but it is not the most comfortable seating available there which protects it.
This next magnificent bench we found in Sedona in the Tlaquepaque Shopping Center known for its artwork. Granted it was for sale, but for the time it was public art. I did not sit on it. Would you have?
This last piece of public art we found while hiking on a trail at a vista pullout on Highway 179 as we approached Bell and Courthouse Rock in Sedona.
Now it’s your turn.
Take us for a spin around your world to see the public art you love and tell us your stories if you like.
