Hallo everybody,

We have just started working with the Wiki Loves Public Art (WLPA)[1] 
contest that will focus on getting pictures on sculptures, mosaics, 
mural paintings, memorials and place 
specific installments in the public space. If 
you are interested in public art, enjoy organizing events, think that it
 is cool and interesting to work with projects that increase cooperation
 between the Chapters, or would like to work towards GLAM in your 
country, well then this would be something for you! We are looking for 
all kinds of volunteers and especially for national coordinators that 
can help us get things going in the countries and coordinate the 
volunteer efforts! 

we don't want to intrude upon the fantastic Wiki Loves Monument contest we are thinking about holding WLPA during the 
month of May in 2013. However, May will hopefully give us enough time to work on this and provide good enough weather 
so that the pictures look nice and people think that it is fun to go out
 and find the art works.

We are of course aware of the tricky copyright legislations in 
different countries but thanks to the fact that this is organized 
together with Europeana (www.europeana.eu) we have the 
possibility to use Europeana's team of judicial experts in finding out 
answers on some of the questions. So if you have a question that is not 
answered on Commons:Freedom of Panorama[2] please write up your 
questions on relevant judicial matters on our list and we will forward 
it to Europeana.[3] 

Both me and the project leader, Lennart Guldbrandsson, will be at 
Wikimania and we would love to met and talk to you about this in person!

I hope to hear from you soon! 

All the best,
