A Taiwanese artist and former East Carolina University professor discovered a strong sense of community during her stay in Greenville, prompting her gift to the city, officials said at a Wednesday ceremony unveiling her artwork.

A three-dimensional textile mural, called “Home” by artist Jan-Ru Wan, was showcased on a wall at the corner of South Evans and Fifth streets prior to a gathering of city officials and shoppers at the opening of the Uptown Umbrella Market at Five Points Plaza.


The work is the result of a partnership between the artist and local textile manufacturer Parrott Canvas Co. It was unveiled by the Public Art Collaborative’s Art-Force program co-directors, Janet Kagan and Jean Greer.
