Update on the Daniel Island Roundabout Sculpture Project
After receiving a number of resident concerns and in consultation with the City of Charleston, the Daniel Island Garden Club has decided to abandon the Roundabout Egret Sculpture project and has discontinued fundraising. All contributions will be fully refunded in the coming weeks.
The Daniel Island Garden Club is a local, volunteer organization that has helped beautify our island for years through their knowledge and love of gardening. Their premier contribution to the Island has been their stewardship of the Osprey Trail in front of the Daniel Island School that promotes conservation and appreciation of plants and wildlife in a protected area. Their passion for our community and encouragement of civic planting and beautification are hallmarks of the Garden Club and we are fortunate to have such dedicated, valued volunteers helping make Daniel Island an even better place to live.
Public art complements the natural beauty of our surroundings on Daniel Island. In the coming months, we hope that residents who are passionate about art and the Island will come forward to work collectively with community input on future opportunities for public art in our parks and common areas on Daniel Island.
