The Chapman Cultural Center has announced a public art project of crosswalk murals in downtown Spartanburg. The murals will be painted at Main Street and King Street, Main Street and Spring Street, and Main Street and Magnolia Street on July 21.
Each mural will be painted by a local artist who was chosen by a panel from the Spartanburg Downtown Cultural District Steering Committee. Michael Webster, Matthew Donaldson, Frankie Page, and Adrian Meadows were selected to complete the project.
In order to paint the murals, several roads will be closed for 24 hours on July 21.
The following roads in downtown Spartanburg will be closed from 2 a.m. on July 21 through 12 p.m. on July 22:
- Main Street: from Church Street to Daniel Morgan Avenue
- Magnolia Street: from One Morgan Square Executive entrance to W. Main Street
- Dunbar Street: from Church Street to Magnolia Street
- Spring Street: from W. Broad Street to St. John Street
- King Street: from W. Main Street to Ezell Street
- Spring Street: from Broad Street to St. John Street
The Chapman Cultural Center hopes the murals will create a more walkable downtown that provides a safe space for both pedestrians and drivers. To learn more about the project, visit their website.
