I am happy to get in on this brand new challenge with co-hosts Cee Neuner and Marsha Ingrao! For this very first week, Marsha is the host. She says:
The #PPAC is deliberately open – photographer’s choice. Here are some ideas to get you started.
- Seasonal Displays
- Statues and Sculptures
- Store Windows
- Car Shows
- Artistic Construction (benches, buildings, bridges)
- Wall Art (not just murals)
- Challenge Guidelines
- Art has to be freely visible from a public street, freeway, or walkway.
- Photographers have free access of use for their photos – no copyrights by the artists.
- The challenge starts every Friday by 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time.
- Write a post on your blog, publish it, and include a link back to the appropriate host’s post – not on Cee’s or Marsha’s #PPAC page. Also write us a comment and paste the link into the comment. Sometimes pingbacks are missed.
- Visit at least two or three other participants in the community and leave them a comment.
Here are some public art pieces in downtown Denver, Colorado. From these photos, you can see why I fell in love with Denver and hope to visit again soon!
This was the first sculpture we saw, in the downtown business district.
Most of the public art we saw was on a pedestrian street, closed to traffic.
These decorated pianos were available for anyone to stop and play (we actually saw someone playing one of them), but I don’t know how well-tuned they were!
Other public art-based entertainments: chess/checker boards!
Cows weren’t the only public art bovines on display – there were bison also!
Cleverly designed restaurant signs can also be classified as public art!
