Greenville has long celebrated the area's wealth of artistic talent, and quite a bit of artwork is out in the open for visitors and locals alike to enjoy. Dozens upon dozens of statues, sculptures, murals, fountains and memorials can be found throughout downtown and its surrounding areas. High-five a bronze Great Dane in Cleveland Park, place a coin into the mouth of Poinsett Plaza's Il Porcellino sculpture for good luck, and marvel at the entrancing, stainless steel Octo 2 at East McBee Avenue and Falls Street as it whirls away on a blustery afternoon. Greenville's public art is a celebration of the city's past, its present, and its astonishing artistry.

- Free Things to Do: "The city of Greenville has created an interactive map of the area's public art for use on tablets and mobile devices. It's an indispensable guide, especially for those interested in what can be found beyond Main Street."
- Best for Free Things to Do Because: Greenville's downtown is so eminently walkable, and that's only heightened by the variety and volume of its striking public artwork.
