Photographing Public Art Challenge (PPAC)

Welcome to the home page of Photographing Public Art Challenge (PPAC). Marsha Ingrao from Always Write blog and I are co-hosting this challenge.

I think we bring together two very different aspects of seeing the world. Marsha loves to tell stories about her photos. I love to let my photo tell the story. We will take turns every other week exploring art in public places. Please post your entries to the appropriate host. We invite you to join in the fun of exposing public art where you find it – at home or in your travels.

PPAC Guidelines

  • Art has to be freely visible from a public street, walkway.
  • The challenge starts every Friday by 9:00 a.m. Pacific Time.
  • Visit two or three other of the participants in the community and leave them a comment.

Things to keep in mind. Most art museums photography is not allowed. We want to make sure that art is free to the public. A fairly safe rule is, if you can see it from a street or sidewalk, you can take a photo it Also please keep your posts and photos must be G-Rated.
