location. Camperdown Plaza
Greenville’s rich textile history is the inspiration for The Common Thread, the 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 our community.
