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 #30, 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 my attention. They are all worthy of a second or third look.
My Choices for PPAC #31 Welcome to Wickenburg
Driving through Arizona, you don’t just happen to stop by Wickenburg. Going one direction south from Prescott on Hwy 89 was so winding and treacherous that it took us nearly a year before we wanted to try to go again. This time we took the back way and went on Iron Springs Road which was a beautiful and pleasant drive.
Mr. Runner is scavenging for some food and must have found an acorn by the looks of it. Now he’s going to try to find some water. It hasn’t rained for quite a while. I hope he finds some.
The grinding stones look empty now. I’ve heard from reliable sources in California that women each had their own hole which they kept for a lifetime. The bigger and deeper the hole, the older the woman. We will leave Mr. Runner to take care of his watering needs and meander through town.
I was shocked when we arrived to find such a charming town, and the museum was to die for. That will come in a later post. For now, let’s just explore to see who’s hanging around downtown.
Upright Citizens Around Town

For nearly thirty years before the jail was built criminals endured the 115-degree summer heat outside, tied to the Jail Tree. Of course, in 1863 no one, even the upstanding citizens enjoyed the comforts of air conditioning, and it seems like everyone had on a lot of clothing.
Animals Suffered Too

There were statues and cool public art around every corner. It will take several posts to show you everything.
The weather was perfect for walking around town, no wind, no clouds, about 75 degrees. I wore a winter jacket and about died! It was cool enough to need it when we left Prescott.
