Blogging challenges sometimes lead me into unfamiliar territory – in this case a song by Dolly Parton which you’ll find on Cee’s challenge page here.  Coat of Many Colours is a song about love and imagination; about making something beautiful from rags and about the riches money can’t buy.  Talented street artists can make something beautiful out of the shabbiest of walls. Some use their art to tell stories about love and imagination too.


This post also ties in with the theme of the Photographing Public Art challenge hosted by Cee Neuner and Marsha Ingrao.  All the art in these photos was freely accessible in a public place but, due to the ephemeral nature of street art, it’s unlikely that many of these pieces still exist.
