PUBLIC ART IN THE PARK self-guided tour
Jun 20 all-day
Greenville SC

The beauty of the waterfalls and gardens is enhanced by the graceful lines of the Liberty Bridge’s architecture and the appealing stonework throughout the park. But that is only the beginning. Several pieces of public art can be found within and around the park. Inside the park you’ll find:

  • The sculpture “Rose Crystal Tower,” created by internationally-renowned artist Dale Chihuly, was commissioned by the Wyche Sculpture Committee, comprised of Wyche family members and friends, to honor Harriet Wyche, whom the garden was named for. Wyche was a life-long Greenville resident and community volunteer, who was instrumental in establishing Falls Park, and played a critical role in its continued development over many decades.
  • A commissioned sculpture by internationally-recognized artist Bryan Hunt, is found at the Main Street entrance to Falls Park. This unique sculpture, Falls Lake Falls, is the second in an edition of 3 (the original is in Tokyo ) and the only piece of its kind on this continent.
  • Evoking much thought and discussion, “Untitled 2002-2003” by Joel Shapiro is also commonly referred to as the dancing or running sculpture. It is located across the river from the main entrance, at the Wyche, Burgess, Freeman and Parham overlook.
  • “Sunflower Fountain,” created by Ed Zeigler, Charles Gunning and Robert Brown, can be found in Pedrick’s Garden. Named for Pedrick Lowrey, one of the principal fundraiser for the park, the fountain is cast bronze and patterned after the center radiating spirals of a sunflower, which was Pedrick’s favorite flower.

Rootabaga Express
Jun 20 @ 10:15 am – 10:45 am
Carl Sandburg Home

Rootabaga Express!
Thursday and Saturday mornings at 10:15 am.

June 15 – August 5 (no plays July 13 & 15)

Carl Sandburg created his own version of American fairy tales when he published Rootabaga Stories (1922) and Rootabaga Pigeons (1923). He replaced the European fairy tale cast of princes, princesses, castles and kingdoms with icons American children would recognize — taxi-drivers, movie actors, skyscrapers, prairies and automobiles. Rootabaga Express! brings the stories of the Five Rusty Rats, Bimbo the Snip and more to life.You’ll meet new characters and journey farther into the Village of Liver and Onions and Sandburg’s imagination than ever before.

The 30-minute plays are appropriate for all ages and held weather permitting in the amphitheater (check our Facebook page in case performances are moved to the garage near the Sandburg Home or cancelled for severe weather). These shows are supported by the Flat Rock Playhouse and the Park Store, operated by America’s National Parks.

Young visitors who attend the plays can earn a limited edition Rootabaga Junior Ranger badge. Rootabaga Ranger activity sheets will be available at the amphitheater. Once completed, kids can get their Rootabaga Ranger badge at the amphitheater, Sandburg Home, or farm.

Arrival and Parking
Please visit our Parking page for more information.
Visitors who need transportation assistance should call the park at 828-707-8125 upon arrival.


Apprentice actors from the Flat Rock Playhouse have performed adaptations of Sandburg’s works for park visitors since 1974. Using Sandburg’s own words from his collections of children’s stories, poetry, collected music, biography of Abraham Lincoln and his own autobiography, the performances provide visitors with a sense of the scope of his work and imagination. Sandburg was an expert storyteller, and easily wove important messages of fairness, empathy and social justice into his writings. Whatever play you are able to attend you will walk away with a smile on your face and a better understanding of the legacy of Carl Sandburg.

ASSASSINS
Jun 20 @ 8:00 pm
The Warehouse Theatre

A journey through the dark side of the American dream, Stephen Sondheim and John Weidman’s Tony-winning musical Assassins explores the lives of nine men and women who either killed (or tried to kill) one of the Presidents of the United States. From John Wilkes Booth to Lee Harvey Oswald and beyond, the stories of our country’s most successful and would-be assassins intersect in unexpected ways, creating a powerful, yet unnervingly funny look at some of the most shocking moments in US history.

WHY SEE THIS SHOW:  Do you like musicals by the greatest theatrical composer of our time?  Do you like dark comedies? Unusual premises?  Incredible production values including immersive seating and, as always, a live orchestra?  You’re in luck, we have ASSASSINS for you!

WHO SHOULD SEE THIS SHOW?  If you liked the dark exploration of history in BLOODY BLOODY ANDREW JACKSON, the absurdity of the premise of URINETOWN THE MUSICAL, or the energy of an EVIL DEAD or NATIVE GARDENS, this show is for you.

THIS SHOW CONTAINS MATURE LANGUAGE, THEMES, AND SIMULATED GUN VIOLENCE.
