Staff Reports 

The Redux Contemporary Art Center is now the home of a vibrant illustration of the late South Carolina Senator Rev. Clementa C. Pinckney, which was drawn by a group of artists led by Tripp Barnes, a native of Columbia.

The mural made its public debut Friday, May 13. The purpose of the project was to pay respect with beauty to the fallen victims of last June’s shootings at Mother Emanuel AME Church, whom were all honored on the painting with the inclusion of nine doves.

Barnes, City of Charleston Mayor John Tecklenburg, new Emanuel AME Pastor Rev. Dr. Betty Deas, Redux Chairman of the Board Francis Ervin, and Rev. Pinckney’s widow, Jennifer Pinckney, were all on hand for the mural’s unveiling.

Redux is located at 136 St. Philip Street and is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 am to 6 pm and Saturday from noon to 5 pm. The mural can be seen on an outside wall of the Center.
