The Ten Artispheres sculpture and the street side of the Riverplace building.
Mural of Falls Park by Rick Forest at 102 West North Street
This fanciful mural by Brigitte Selby on the Swamp Rabbit Brewery in Travelers Rest evokes some local references. The window bars are a tribute to the building’s former life as a post offices. And the barrel is a reminder of the region’s dark corner tradition of moonshine making. And of course the rabbit is a nod to the nearby Swamp Rabbit trail.
The mural uses a technique of ‘trompe-l’œil’ to create an illusion of 3D.
This 3D mural by Brigitte Selby was created in 2015 on the side of the Whistlestop at the American Cafe in Travelers Rest. It makes use of the wood fired oven which protrudes from the wall to illustrate the cow catcher / pilot of the locomotive. The chimney of the oven is perfectly positioned over the locomotive to create the smokestack, and there’s a headlamp to add even more realism. The illusion is quite startling when viewed from the parking lot.
Some additional details may still be added as the mural is finished.
Several windows of the First Presbyterian Church of Greenville have special artwork in the form of stained glass, created by an artisan in Statesville, NC. This is an original artwork based on a number of sources.
A full perspective of the window is shown below:
This sculpture is located in front of the Courtyard Marriott in downtown Greenville.
