The next time you’re on the greenway, look around. Torrence Creek Greenway has new art along the inside of its 300-ft-long tunnel under I-77.

The light installation is called “State of Flow” by Project One Studio. Led by artist Adam Buente, the display represents and blend “movement, liquidity, and ephemerality with the region’s natural history.” It’s inspired by Lake Norman, Torrence Creek, and McDowell Creek.

The project was spearheaded by the Arts and Science Council, a group supporting artists across the city + boasts accessibility to arts and culture.

“Park and Recreation needed to make a dark and dreary-looking tunnel light and welcoming,” said Randella Davis, ASC’s Public Art Program Director. “The greenway is a huge asset to our region, and Park and Recreation, naturally, want to encourage use of it.”

A ribbon cutting is scheduled for Monday, July 15 at 6 p.m. at 10300 Compass St. in Huntersville.
