Fact: Teenagers are more interested in seeing horror films than they are in seeing science fiction films. Well, put down that popcorn and forget about the blood spatter. Instead, go outside and enjoy some public art.

You have probably seen public art on your way to school or work and have never given it a second notice. I think public art is like a museum artifact in that each one has its own story to tell.

This may be an unusual topic to cover but since I have accumulated literally thousands of pictures throughout the years, I would like to share with you some pictures of sculptures, monuments, water fountains, murals, painted stairs, and graffiti areas that are from my own collections. If you want to know more about the picture just click on the image.
