We all know that Greenville has a vibrant art scene — and we’re not just talking about The Greenville County Museum of Art or the Greenville Center for Creative Arts. One of our all-time favorite galleries? Greenville itself.

Greenville is home to a number of meaningful murals. Today, we’re sharing where to find some pieces — old and new — that really paint a picture of our city and beyond.

The newest additions

New for 2024, local cities are debuting new, colorful landmark-centric murals. From the Golden Strip to Downtown Greenville, this stamp + postcard style is taking over.

Shoutout to reader Beth B. who predicted this mural making its debut.

The world that's in my mind."

Projecting pride, purpose, and promise, this mural depicts Elias Brown Halloway and his wife, Hattie, who were neighborhood residents in the 1930s and were instrumental in the park’s creation. The mural connects the heritage of the land with the vision of these historical figures — a reminder of the unity they helped commence in the community.

Canvas Mural, 301 College St., Greenville | By Guido van Helten

This photo-realistic mural on the façade of the eight-story Canvas building features longtime Greenville resident and educator, Pearlie Harris. Guido says “the mural concept explores connectivity, diversity, and unity in Greenville, using the history of integration in education as a unifying symbolic theme.”

City of Altruism, Bouharoun’s Package Store, 1102 W. Washington St., Greenville | By Gaia

Completed in 2014, this mural aligns with the theme of altruism and showcases Greenville’s textile history and “the evolution of the mills.” The artist says, “the crumbling and warping represents the transition of this use from one of labor to one of leisure. The lilies represent the gales of progress. These same forces rendered the mills obsolete and found new use for them.”

Suds on Stone, 798 E. Stone Ave., Greenville | By Jesse Bowser

This multi-panel mural along Stone Avenue depicts elements all too familiar to Greenville, from the city’s area code, to the Liberty Bridge, to loaves of bread — which we can only guess is a worthy homage to Swamp Rabbit Cafe’s Stecca bread.
