Artist Charles Pate Jr. is creating a bronze statue for the Lakeview Link Trail Plaza

As the completion of the Lakeview Link to the Prisma Health Swamp Rabbit Trail approaches, Bike Walk Greenville is pleased to announce that we have commissioned the talented Greenville Artist Charles Pate Jr. to create public art that celebrates “We all need safe places to walk and ride a bike.”

The statue will be installed at the new entrance plaza at mile marker 29.7 of the SRT, and we have an agreement to donate the statue to Greenville County.

After a private fundraising campaign earlier this year, we have raised 80.9% of the total project cost of $35,500 and today we are starting a public campaign to raise the remaining funding.

Charles talks about the project in this short video filmed at his studio on June 4, 2019.
