Prescott Downtown Series
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 #39 Prescott Timeline, 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 #40 Prescott Art Murals
You all know that you have to either be a tourist in a new place or entertain visitors to really enjoy what a place has to offer. When we first moved to Prescott, we were both tourists and busy living in the community. We overlooked a lot. When our friends came, Monica and I had to park a distance from our destination, Courthouse Square. As a result of having to walk, we discovered these fabulous murals depicting artists and musicians over the years.
Since my WOTY (Word of the Year) is CURATE, I contemplated how the committee came up with all these names of artists to honor. It’s hard to sort out the history makers from the average people who might have talent but not the fame to go with it. Without some research and knowledge of the area, we have to rely on legend-makers, like the artist who painted this mural, to make good decisions about who and what to include. Happily, research went into these art pieces and then went before citizens for approval.
Updates on Always Write
- If you host or participate regularly in a challenge and would like an interview on Always Write contact me. My next interview will be with our neighbor, 12-year-old Olive, the bull rider. It has nothing to do with any challenge, don’t worry!
- Yvette Prior’s short story, “SWEET FEELING” on Story Chat is receiving a lot of attention! Come be part of the conversation. The summary will have links to the “chatter’s” blogs.

Now it’s your turn.
If you are one of the PPACers who hasn’t joined us in a while, then don’t panic! The tag is #PPAC and we are looking for any photographs whose subject matter is an art exhibit that’s free to the public best seen when walking or driving.
Feel free to double dip because many times your mural or fountain, statue, or engraving fits someone else’s challenge, too. Thanks so much for stopping by and having fun with PPAC.
