Public Art Around The World
People love them, hate them, sit on them, kiss them, rub them, pray to them, photo bomb them, lean on them,
dress them, sleep on them and even trip over them. Birds love them too! Some get stolen, painted, damaged or simply
vanish over night . Some have mysteriously developed mythical powers. Some are believed responsible for
fertility, wealth, health and marriage, whilst others are blamed for disasters, bad weather and tragedies. This is
the amazing world of public art.
Public Art Around The World is a comprehensive guide to statues, sculptures, monuments and memorials from
all corners of the globe. I have left no plinth unturned to find you the stories behind each work.
History, scandals, trivia, myths, artistic spats, controversies, it's all here.
My goal in creating this site is to provide, not just the basic information about statues and
sculptures, but to unearth all the fun and usually unknown facts about them, to give you a
greater appreciation for our most ignored art form. Oh and it also provides you with
some interesting dinner time conversations.
If you are a sculptor and would like your work added, please don't hesitate in contacting me. If you have a
photo of a statue or sculpture you would like to add please feel free to email me too.
And just a reminder, this website is continually being updated so you may want to join our mailing list or
visit our Facebook page.
There is also a Flipboard magazine for your reading pleasure, where I regularly publish
humorous current public art news stories from around the world.
I hope you enjoy this website as much I enjoy creating it.
