This public art project is located near the site of sit-in lunch counter protests of the 1960’s on Main Street, Rock Hill, SC. The walkway is contemporary with historical and natural references. The overall design of the walkway references the open book, and flowing river of the Catawba. Ideas of hope, freedom, change, turbulence, obstacles, and friendship are integrated within the walkway. The civil rights slogan “Liberty and Justice For All” is marked on the adjacent historical brick wall. Blooms of the native dogwood, and locally rare spider lilies, and sunflowers are softly painted on the wall, and represented within the mosaic tile. Heads of humanity at the Main Street end symbolizes the diverse coalition of people making positive change during the civil rights movement to the present day. Collaborators: Juan Logan and Lauren Doran. View the detailed site plan
