What Is Public Art? Share Your Favorites

Have you ever walked down a street  in an eclectic neighborhood, a college campus or in the heart of a city's downtown and seen something that caught your eye? Perhaps it was a piece of public art.

In a few weeks, WUSF News is starting an occasional series called “Art Populi.” We’ll be reporting from counties around the Tampa Bay area on whimsical houses, public art galleries, abandoned art, city murals and more.

We'll be talking a lot about public art on social media in the coming months. But before we share with you what we’ve found, we want to your thoughts.

When you think about public art, what do you see?

Go ahead and grab your phone, and send us your thoughts and pictures. Tweet us @WUSF, or find us on Facebook and Instagram@WUSFPublicMedia. Make sure you use #WUSFPubArt for a chance to be featured in a story.  

I took my first photography class when I was 11. My stepmom begged a local group to let me into the adults-only class, and armed with a 35 mm disposable camera, I started my journey toward multimedia journalism.
