On July 17th, 2015, a white supremacist walked into a bible study at Mother Emanuel AME church, shooting and killing nine members of the congregation. One of the observers in attendance was Rev. Clementa Pinckney, the senior pastor at Emanuel and a state senator who had served in the state Legislature since 2000. South Carolina born artist Tripp Barnes painted this mural on the side of the former Redux Contemporary Arts Center in 2016 to remember Pinckney and the eight other men and women who were killed that night. They are Cynthia Hurd, Rev. Sharonda Coleman-Singleton, Tywanza Sanders, Ethel Lance, Susie Jackson, Depayne Middleton Doctor, Rev. Daniel Simmons, and Myra Thompson. There is a memorial mural on the side of John L Dart Library for Cynthia Hurd, who was a veteran librarian.

The Daily

Hip coffee house with multiple murals

Opposite the entrance to this popular coffee house is Power & Glory, a large mural by local son, Shepard Fairey. The artist shot to fame when he designed the iconic Hope poster during the 2008 election of then presidential candidate Barack Obama, but he was already well known in the art and skateboarding worlds as the founder of OBEY Clothing. He also went on to design the We The People posters for the Women's March in 2017. His work can be found in art museums and on outdoor walls around the world. He has two other pieces in Charleston, one on the side of Groucho's on King Street and the other on the side of College Lodge on Calhoun Street. The next mural down is by local visual artist Jonathan Rypkema, which flows into the mural by international graffiti legend Apexer. Around the corner the internationally acclaimed visual artist Jason Woodside added a mural of his own, which is a bit more muted than his traditionally bright and colorful works. Order coffee and a smoothie to go or sit down for breakfast and a bloody mary. This hip market and cafe sells beer, wine, produce, and prepared foods in addition to the healthy, hot foods they serve. If you get hungry while you are perusing art, they also have a location at the Gibbes Museum. Stop by their sister restaurant, Butcher & Bee, and their food hall, Warehouse, if you are in NoMo.

One of the observers in attendance was Cynthia Hurd, a veteran librarian who managed this branch of the Charleston Public Library for 21 years. She then moved to the St. Andrews Regional Library, which she managed for another until her death. That branch of the libraray has since been renamed in her honor. The visual artist R. Robots, who is known for his colorful murals and signature robot character, painted this mural in 2016. The other eight men and women who were killed that night are Rev. Clementa Pinckney, Rev. Sharonda Coleman-Singleton, Tywanza Sanders, Ethel Lance, Susie Jackson, Depayne Middleton Doctor, Rev. Daniel Simmons, and Myra Thompson.

As part of Piccolo Spoleto in 2015, Enough Pie organized this corner mural by Portuguese visual artist Sergio Odeith. Known for his three dimensional works and detailed portraits, Odeith painted this 3D corner piece that was soon joined by many others to cover the rest of the walls on this lot. Odeith later came back to Charleston to paint a portrait of the Beastie Boys on the nearby Home Team BBQ.
