Old Darlington Public Square – Darlington, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Darlington County Photos | Old Darlington Public Square
Columbia-born artist Blue Sky, known in South Carolina for his trompe l’oeil murals painted on public buildings, completed this work in 1985. Titled Old Darlington Public Square, the 20×144′ mural in Darlington depicts how the town may have appeared in 1939 – the movie advertised in the marquis is Gone With The Wind.
Blue Sky earned both undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of South Carolina. While both a sculptor and a painter, his most famous piece remains the mural Tunnelvision in downtown Columbia. His work has appeared nationally – including in the Smithsonian – and among his many awards is South Carolina’s highest civilian honor, the Order of the Palmetto, which he received in 2000.
