Photographing Public Art Challenge (PPAC)

Cee Neuner and I are co-hosting this challenge and will take turns every other week exploring art in public places. We invite you to join in the fun of exposing public art where you find it – at home or in your travels.

Do you love to take pictures of murals, statues in parks, and other public art displays? Photographing Public Art Challenge (PPAC) is your opportunity to reveal all those interesting photos that have never had a place. PPAC gives you a venue to show places you visit or live through the arts.

“What distinguishes public art is the unique association of how it is made, where it is, and what it means.”

Association for Public Art

As writers of this challenge, we don’t have all the answers. We will explore a deeper meaning of public art as we go through the challenge.

“…every public art project is an interactive process involving artists, architects, design professionals, community residents, civic leaders, politicians, approval agencies, funding agencies, and construction teams.
