Athens, Warsaw and a Global Public Art Miscellany

A Traveller's Miscellany of Public Art

The determination to attend both the Pacific Murals Gathering in Bowen, Queensland, Australia and the 3rd Californian Murals' Symposium .. and then a concluding visit to Salem MA, required the circumnavigation of the globe! And that inevitably occasioned access to more than a little public art in transit.

Travel first to Warsaw and Athens yielded outstanding art - for the first it was the muralisation of the facias of city homes and the second was inevitably post-Olympic Games 2004 restoration architecture from ancient Greece.

Broome, NW Australia has natural public art as well as its famous pearls!

Sculpture and topographical art, Staircases to the Moon and the Sun, the legendary camel train .. and even a mural ... all were to be found in Broome and about.
