Public Art Proposals

The Pitt County Arts Council at Emerge is the Civic Art Facilitator for the City of Greenville. We oversee the planning and implementation of many art projects. Currently, there are three proposals for public art in the Uptown Greenville District. We would love to receive community input! Please take a look at the proposals followed by a quick survey.

Traffic Control Boxes

Three traffic control boxes will be vinyl wrapped highlighting the talents of three different artists.

Greenville Parking Deck

The Bubbles mural would be painted on the three existing concrete panels on the Cotanche side of the Greenville Parking Deck. The design was created by an ECU art student.


by Helen Jaria Alvir Lewis

“This mural shows the people in our community, of different races, that they are represented. When people drive or walk by the mural they can see the two hands, the bright colors, and think of how we can come together and work together to create a community where we can all enjoy the simple joys of life, like bubbles.”

First street Mural


Black Lives Do Matter

The project will have 18 Black artist paint "BLACK LIVES DO MATTER" each responsible for painting one letter. The painting would be done on 1st Street, between Cotanche Street and Washington Street, as a contemporary piece of art that also honors the late Sycamore Hill Community that was displaced by urban renewal in the 1960s.
