The mesmerizing kinetic sculpture Octo 2 on East McBee Avenue was designed by Anthony Howe, whose work was also featured in his design of the Olympic cauldron in Rio. The sculpture is driven by the wind and only requires a small amount of maintenance each year.
While not a Wrought Iron gate, this access gate behind Project One at 1 North Main Street is definitely a wrought and welded piece of art.

The tents on the South Main Street bridge stretch in front of the 2014 sculpture of Ten Artispheres, which honored 10 years of Artisphere in Greenville at that time. (So it’s 12 now!)
Artisphere grew a bit larger this year, moving further down South Main Street and into Augusta Street.
Artisphere 2016 starts this Friday May 13 and runs through the weekend.
“Il Porcellino” (Italian “piglet”) is the local Florentine nickname for the bronze fountain of a boar on South Main Street. The plaque on the front reads:
The original bronze wild boar, “Il Porcellino” was placed in the Mercato Nuovo in Florence, Italy by Pietro Tacca in 1612.
Legend has it that if you place a coin in the boar’s mouth and it falls into the grate below, your wish will be granted.
Also, rubbing his nose will bring good luck and guarantee a return trip to “Il Porcellino”

The Inspired Tires project by Michelin challenged a school or organization to convert ordinary tires into extraordinary works of art for a possible prize. The theme is how the Upstate celebrates international inclusion. The project above was submitted by the Monarch Elementary School. View all the entries this month in person at the Hughes Main Library and vote for your favorite project at Michelin’s Inspired Tires web site.
