Water Blessing

A new statue by the artist Doug Young was unveiled on Saturday in the newly finished Prospect Park at the corner of W Washington and W Broad Streets. It is titled “Water Blessing”, a tribute to the influence of the original Cherokee inhabitants in the region. It comes alive through the use of a small water fountain trickling from the water container.

The work “Palmetto with Flowers” by Jamie von Herndon is installed on the Public Art Trail at the Mauldin Cultural Center. This project was chosen to fit the theme of “South Carolina Strong”, a nod to the resilience, strength, and unity of South Carolinians during the tragedy at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston and the 2015 statewide flooding.

Through Our Eyes

The project in Greenville: “We give 100 disposable cameras to people and ask them to photograph their life and story.” The result is on exhibit at the Artist Guild Gallery of Greenville. Twenty photo selections are enlarged and framed along with a short story and a box to accept donations of spare change for those which touch the heart. There is also a long wall displaying many more of the photos as normal size prints.
