FOREST ACRES, S.C. (WOLO) – A new mural covers the walls at popular shopping center, Trenholm Plaza, in Forest Acres.

The artist, Paul Yanko, from Greenville, is a teacher at the South Carolina Governor’s School. He teaches visual arts there.

Yanko’s “Balancing Act” was chosen from a handful of proposals. He spent three months this summer painting the wall, between LOFT and Stein Mart.
