City of Sumter, South Carolina ‘Seven Swans’ sculpture at Swan Lake Iris Gardens
Swan Lake Iris Gardens, located in Sumter, is open and features a sculpture by an award-winning artist Grainger McKoy. City officials say that the artist created the Seven Swans emerging from the water to represent the days it took God to create the earth.
The sculpture sits 26-feet above the ground with the fountain below it, according to city spokesperson Shelley Kile, and has already become an area attraction.
City of Sumter, South Carolina Wayfinding Development and Implementation
JMTE has been working with the City of Sumter South Carolina since 2017 on the development and implementation of the Sumter Wayfinding Project.

JMTE continues to work with many communities on projects like this in various sizes and stages. Let us know if we can assist your community.
