Welcome to Public Art Around The World, a comprehensive guide to the statues, sculptures, fountains, monuments, and memorials from around the globe. My goal in creating this site is to provide, not just the information inscribed on the plaque, but to unearth all the fun and usually unknown facts about them, and to give you a greater appreciation for our most ignored art form. History, scandals, trivia, myths, artistic spats, controversies, it’s all here.
Yes, this website is an extension of publicartaroundtheworld.com I have finally moved over to WordPress so I could include a blog and comments.
How To Use This Website
Each country is broken into States or Regions and then cities, suburbs, and towns. You may have to click a few times to get to your destination but it will be worth the journey. You can, alternatively use the search button.
When an image appears simply click on it to take you to the page. However, when a gallery of images appears you must click over the title. When using your mobile phone it can be a little tricky.
