LAST WEEK’S FABULOUS BLOGGERS
Last week for PPAC #50, I had fun responses from all of you. With all the other challenges, even public art, I thank all the bloggers who participate in PPAC. Please honor these bloggers with your visits this week. I am trying something new this month both with WQW and PPAC. I’m using what Natalie the Explorer uses, an InLinkz link. Let me know how you like it.

IT’S EASY TO PLAY ALONG WITH #PPAC
- There is no weekly theme even though my post has a theme with murals, statues, fountains, scrap art, graffiti, store windows, seasonal displays, car or art shows, artistic construction, or even artistic neighborhood decor. Photograph the public art that is available to you.
- Art should be freely visible from a public street, freeway, or walkway or inside a publicly accessed building like a library. If you pay, it’s not public.
- Photographers should have free access of use for their photos – no copyrights by the artists.
- The challenge starts every Friday at 9:00 a.m. Phoenix Time and it ends on Thursday at noon.
- Write a post on your blog, publish it, and include a link back to my weekly post not my page preferably in a comment. Sometimes pingbacks are missed. See how to create pingbacks here.
- Take time to visit other PPAC participants throughout the week. I recommend visiting at least two or three other participants in the community and leaving them a comment.
- Have fun! Art is to be enjoyed!
For More Ideas about PPAC…
These early-bird participants might give you some great ideas about something you’ve never thought about as public art or how to photograph it.

My Choices for PPAC #51 Fountains as Public Art
As the weather starts to warm up we want to spend more time near the water. Whether there is much water nearby or not fountains are a beautiful location for gatherings. Cee is running her Black and White Challenge theme of bricks and rocks this week. Some of the fountains in my collections fit in that category as well.

The Melbourn Gardens are famous for the 1930 Conservatory built in the Spanish Mission Style with this lovely fountain outside the entrance.

- WQW #22 (Writer’s Quotes Wednesdays) – “Hot June Holidays: Father’s Day and Juneteenth” The only rule is to have at least one quote in your post about the topic. Remember a song can be a quote, too. Then just post a story, poem, or pictures that tie into and respond to your quote or quotes. The last day to post links is Tuesday at 12:00 noon Phoenix time. Try the new InLinkz link.
- PPAC (Photographing Public Art Challenge) every Friday at 9:00 (ish). The last day to post links is Thursday at 12:00 noon Phoenix time. Try the new InLinkz link.
Now it’s your turn.
What’s your PPAC theme this week? Are you into statues or sculptures (and what’s the difference anyway?) Did you find some cool murals? Did you go on a trip or a walk around your hometown and grab a bunch of different kinds of public art? I can’t wait to see it.
