“Mushrooms,” an illuminated installation, is open now through December 11, 2022 at Hampton Park, 30 May Murray Drive in Charleston. Visitors may access the display, which is adjacent to the Rose Pavilion, daily from 5 am-7 pm.
Charlotte-based artist Meredith Connelly is the creator behind this temporary illuminated installation. “Mushrooms” consists of more than 100 handcrafted thermoplastic mushroom forms, ranging in height from 8 inches to 12 inches. Each mushroom was created specifically for this site.
“Mushrooms” marks the relaunch of Art in the Park, a public art initiative organized by nonprofit Charleston Parks Conservancy.
