Mauldin Public Art Trail Unveiling for
Sixth Installation at the Mauldin Cultural Center

MAULDIN, SC – We invite you to join us as we unveil the sixth installation on the Mauldin Public Art Trail.  The trail was established in December 2014 as a way to beautify the community with public works created by South Carolina artists.  Every year a new work is commissioned to fill one of the nine trail sites lining the perimeter of the Mauldin Outdoor Amphitheater.

This year, artist Carey Morton has created a piece to exemplify the theme, “Heroes and Leaders.” This theme celebrates the various groups of people who have not traditionally been given such a title, but who are heroes nonetheless.  Morton earned his MFA concentrating in sculpture from Clemson University in 2018, having completed his undergraduate degree at Winthrop University.

The unveiling will feature a Q+A with the artist and will take place outside of the Mauldin Cultural Center along City Center Drive on Monday, August 23 at 6:00 p.m.

The featured themes and past artists have been “Crossroads” by Joey Manson (2015), “South Carolina Strong” by Jamie von Herndon (2016), “Appreciation of Diversity” by Yelitza Diaz Muzzarelli (2017), “Industry of the Upstate” by Arrington Matthews (2018), and “Youth: Passion for Change” by Aldo Muzzarelli (2019).  Morton’s sculpture will join the other pieces from the past year’s themes along the trail.

More information about the Mauldin Public Art Trail can be found at mauldinculturalcenter.org/public-art-trail.

SCDOT’s Butler Road proposal in Mauldin, which could displace residents, raises concerns

Mauldin Mayor Terry Merrit is encouraging anyone with concerns related to the project to reach out to SCDOT and to attend the Jan. 14 meeting.  Citing COVID-19 restrictions, SCDOT has limited in-person attendance for that meeting and asked anyone who plans to go to register ahead of time.

    Merritt said he believes the agency should have scheduled more meetings and hosted them in a larger space to safely accommodate more people.  “They (SCDOT) do not want the citizens of Mauldin to show up as a group,” he said.  “They want to keep everyone one on one where they can have an easier time with them.”

5 January 2020

Will SCDOT's proposed changes to East Butler Road be good for Mauldin residents and businesses?

The changes will destroy one resident's home, divide a valuable piece of property into useless small pieces, disrupt businesses, take away even more of the front lawns of East Butler Road's residents, reduce parking in front of businesses and churches, and turn the CVS parking-lot into a short cut-through for those in a hurry, making it unsafe for the store's customers and their children.

Yet the changes will not combine Old Mill Road and Bethel Drive into a single intersection.  The changes follow SCDOT's rules, but solve nothing.

Did you know that SCDOT, not Mauldin, owns Butler Road? Are the proposed "improvements" really intended to make life better for Mauldin residents and business owners?  Or is this project just a way to increase SCDOT's Federal funding and SCDOT's budget?

Mauldin is no longer the crossroads it once was.  It does not need another highway; it already has that in Highway 417.  East Butler does not need to be turned into another Woodruff Road by SCDOT.

Mauldin is a residential community;  a place where families can walk or bicycle, for pleasure, or to go to a store or a restaurant, or to see a show at the Cultural Center, or to get to work.
    Greenville, Simpsonville, and Fountain Inn all have "pedestrian friendly" downtowns.  It is a very attractive feature everywhere.  What is keeping SCDOT from helping Mauldin do the same?  Just who is supposed to benefit from SCDOT's proposed changes?

A highway is not pedestrian friendly.  Woodruff Road is not pedestrian-friendly.

Mauldin's plans call for East Butler Road to be pedestrian-friendly, from Corn Road to the Cultural Center and the planned City Center.

For more information about those changes and their impact, see the article DOT Yields to Historic Mauldin Landmark in the Simpsonville Sentinel.  Read how the Mauldin Outdoor Market's Joel Ann Chandler stopped SCDOT from ruining her business.  What she did, you can do.

See SCDOT's own description of their plans for East Butler Road.

Make your voice heard!

Let SCDOT know what you think!  Email SCDOT!

Contact Mauldin's Mayor and City Council to let them know what you think of SCDOT's proposed changes to East Butler Road.
