Students help paint mural at senior living facility in Greenville

GREENVILLE, S.C. (WSPA) – A mural the length of a football field has been painted on the outside of the health center at the Rolling Green Village Senior Living Community.

The “Seasons of the Heart” mural took about seven months, 4,300 hours, and 38 gallons of paint to take shape; and, now, it is getting some recognition.

The mural was painted by residents and staff, along with students and a teacher from St. Joseph Catholic High School.

The idea for the piece of art started as a quest to bring multiple generations together and learn from each other.

“I was a little unsure going into it, but as it, it just kept coming and everything you know the ideas came. I realized that I had skills that I could use, I had photographs I could use to base a lot of this off of, so it just kind of kept growing,” said visual arts teacher Deborah Pickard.

The mural is an ode to Ecclesiastes 3:1 and how time changes with each season and in life.

It was painted ahead of Rolling Green Village’s 30th anniversary.

A dedication ceremony for the mural was held at 4:00 p.m. on Monday.
