Center for the Arts Tree Sculpture

A sculpture is "Emerging" from an old, dead  tree...

A recently deceased tree is getting a new life as a sculpture for the community thanks to the Partnership for Tomorrow Make Greer Great Grant.

"The title is called Emerging. 2020 has been a crazy year for everybody and the emerging kind of lets us say that we’re emerging into the future. This is a tough time but we can all get through it and we will be born into something even better than it was," says Artist Edwin Hutchison with Crescent Carvers.

Known for their ice sculpting, three artists of ICE AGE Ice Sculptures of Greenville make the first cut of the City of Greer Center for the Arts living sculpture. Turning this lifeless tree into a sculpture is made possible by the Partnership For Tomorrow Make Greer Great Grant. The project could take about 3 weeks to complete.
