“Rock Hill” Mural by Osiris Rain
Where Are We In CLT?by The Biscuit Staff on April 28, 2020
Just a few miles down the road from the Queen City sits the city of Rock Hill, SC, or as we like to call it South of South-South Charlotte. The city commissioned Charlotte artist Osiris Rain (@osirisrain) to create a piece to kick off their Mural Mile initiative which is led by the Old Town Association, Knowledge Park and Rock Hill city leaders.
Rain’s is the first in the series which will showcase 8-10 artists’ creative works. The mural, according to Osiris, is to be a “bold, welcoming beacon for the town.” The flower in the middle of the composition is the rare spider lily that grows on the Catawba River. If you step back, you can even see “Rock Hill” spelled out in the abstract shapes of the background.
Osiris is also tweaking his 4th annual Can Jam CLT festival. Instead of holding the 3-day NoDa street art experience like usual, he is using that platform to create a space available to artists throughout the year. As COVID-19 spreads, he wants to provide a safe working environment for artists to complete their projects. Learn more about the changes to Can Jam CLT, here.
