PPAC # 47

Marsha Ingrao from Always Write blog has an interesting challenge.

What PPAC is all about.

Public art is which encompasses any form of art you see in a public place, large or small, statues, murals, graffiti, gardens, Christmas lights, even buildings or bridges. The art should be visible from streets, sidewalks or outdoor public places

The owner, Helen Martins, turned her house and the area around it into a visionary environment, elaborately decorated with ground glass and containing more than 300 statues including owls, camels, peacocks, pyramids, and people.

  1. Mal oor die uilhuis…. Nieu betesda nie te ver van ons nie. En mooi uitsig om daar te kom. Party mense gril vir die uile, maar ek’s mal daaroor. Het ‘n kniehoogte een gekoop, ‘n lig onder ingedruk en dan skyn die oë groen. Oulike lampie in ‘n donker hoekie in my huis.


  2. Aletta, you found a treasure mine for public art. The mosaic girl begging, the animals going into the little barn, the man on the camel. These are expressions of their everyday life, things that are so different than anything I’ve ever seen, or probably will ever see here. WOW!
