Greenville’s rich textile history is the inspiration for The Common Thread - a multimedia public art installation for Camperdown Plaza.  Reflecting iconic shapes, designs, and patterns from the textile industry, the site-specific sculptures are dynamic and playful with sound, light, and color. Utilizing a combination of wood, cement, and steel, these re-imagined and oversized textile sculptures weave a story throughout the plaza of the legacy and importance of the textile industry in Greenville, SC.
