Local artists to install, celebrate new public art project on Huger Street this weekend

Street artist Sergio Odeith participated in Enough Pie’s 2015 street art project “Awakening III: Solstice” with this mural at Huger and Hanover streets.

International street artist Sergio Odeith recently installed two of his signature 3-D murals in public spaces on the upper peninsula. One, painted during Piccolo Spoleto, is on the side of a Hester Street home facing Corrine Jones Park. The other is on a corner of the Dixie Furniture warehouse on Huger Street, which he created as the first installment of Enough Pie’s street art project called “Awakening III: Solstice.” Cathryn Zommer, executive director of the local organization, said it’s “inspired by the idea of letting sunshine into a neglected place for a vibrant awakening.” Artists of all types from across the Lowcountry have been tapped to expand on Odeith’s mural by adding their creative touches to the wall and the grassy area around it. The 14 artists and performers chosen to participate will begin the installation process Friday and work until Saturday evening, when the full project will be unveiled during a celebration of local art.

When: 4-8 p.m. Saturday

Where: Corner of Huger and Hanover streets, Charleston
