As I try to look for public art that compliments other photo challenges, I found that I could do all three of Cee’s challenges. When I wrote the first words of the title, they sounded almost like wedding vows. It took will power not to add, “In sickness and in health.” But all my public art is healthy today except one – which died.
Sorry I’m late today. Nutter Butter is sick. You know how it is when you have a sick pet or child – life stops and revolves around them. Please send kind thoughts and prayers his way today.

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 (posted by Wednesday at noon) might give you some great ideas about something you’ve never thought about as public art or how to photograph it.

I struggle to comment on some sites. I just figured out with Sarah’s post that if I comment through WP Reader, I’m able to post my comment. In the post itself, the black Log In box covers the icons or anywhere you need to enter information and forbids you to enter anything.
My Choices for PPAC #61 Public Art in Black and White
To go with Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week, I found lots of hot and cold public art. For more hot art in color PPAC #47 featured public art in Palm Desert.
Art with an N in the middle of the word.
