Last night we had a great turnout for the #SRTartparty at the inn hosted by Kathleen King. “The Runner” was revealed and is the second installment of art along the Swamp Rabbit Trail. The gathering was to build awareness and support for more public art along the trail that connects downtown Greenville SC to Furman University and Travelers Rest SC.
Learn more about the public art movement along the trail here and check out the limited edition cycling jerseys “Tortoise Has a Spare” on sale now while supplies last! Proceeds from the sale of the jerseys will go to more art on the trail. Stay tuned for more events and we invite everyone to get involved with this art movement on the trail!
