The Upright Citizens Brigade strikes again:  https://www.greenvilleonline.com/story/news/local/2021/05/11/greenville-sc-respond-controversial-wings-of-the-city-exhibit-hispanic-alliance-south-carolina

Nice to see that this is finally coming back. https://greenvillejournal.com/news/fire-fire-brown-street-sign-fire/  

I didn't realize that this was gone. I wish the street was more actively used. Redevelopment of the lots to its east would be great. Even still as a vehicular street, turning this into something more

What happened to this project?

The probably realized that they weren't sure how to build it... JK, but it may turn out like the Carillon at Riverplace, where they awarded a winner and then commissioned something different many years later.

A truck took it out over a year ago on the Coffee Street end. I couldn't agree more about turning this into a pedestrian only street. The more areas like that, the better.

Where is that?

SUE SIMPSON GARDEN

This garden spot is named to honor Greenville's first City Councilwoman. Sponsored by the Carolina Foothill Garden Club, the garden features annual flowers. It is located at 200 East Camperdown Way, at the Church Street ramp.

This is a great little neighborhood park,  I've always enjoyed it.  The address says it's on Camperdown, but I always thought it was on Cleveland Street. :dontknow:

We closed on our house in Greenville yesterday, and my GPS got me lost on the way back up the mountain to Asheville.  It took me by a neat little piece of public art I'd read about.... Those old lion statues from the zoo that now reside in the parking lot of a gas station at the corner of Laurens and Washington.  I got all excited.

This reminded me of something, but I didn't know what until I was doing some painting in the house the other day. You know how the caulk keeps coming out of the tube if you forget to relieve the pressure of the caulk gun? I had a near duplicate of these statues sitting on the carpet in our guest room for a few seconds....

LOL. When it was on Stone we always called it "Dog Poo" or "Soft Serve"  (always did remind me of trips to Yogurt Mountain).

From the City's Art in Public Places committee's meeting agenda:

New Business
a. Wind Spirit – Grand Bohemian Lodge -- Christian Sotille, Sotille & Sotille, LLC

b. Wings of the City – Falls Park & Peace Center Campus -- Adela Mendoza, Hispanic Alliance

I wish they would provide information about the planned works. There's no indication if they are murals, sculptures, etc. Nonetheless, I'm glad to see the inclusion of more art in the City.

I wonder what this will turn out to be.
