One of the reasons we travel is for the story. Not necessarily to tell the stories of our own trips, but to see and be told the stories of faraway places. Public art tells those stories. It can be statues of a city’s notable residents, memorials to victories or remembrances of the past. It can be the buildings designed to catch up with our lifestyles, or the scrawlings and murals of the next generation. Public art gives the traveler a view into the past and a glimpse at the next chapter of the story, and we want to discuss the best places in the world to see it.
Join us for this week’s #PassionPassport Twitter Chat on Thursday, March 26th in conjunction with @Andaz, to discuss public art and the best places to see it around the world. Join us at 2PM EST on Thursday using the tag #passionpassport to join the discussion.
