This week’s new mystery photo shows a relatively new, colorful mural. It’s in Charleston, but where? What can you tell us about it? We’ll forward some City Paper swag to the 8th person who correctly answers the questions and identifies this week’s mystery photo. To enter (one entry per person), send your guess, name and hometown in an email to: mystery@charlestoncitypaper.com.

LAST WEEK’S MYSTERY, “Escher-like mural,” shows an abstracted representation of bookshelves on the side of the John L. Dart Library on upper King Street.

Congratulations to this week’s sleuths who correctly identified the photo, including Kate Austin of Mount Pleasant.

Allan Peel of San Antonio, Texas, told us a little about the mural: “The mural is a representation of a number of library bookshelves, and was created by Nick Kuszyk, aka R. ROBOTS, in honor of Cynthia Graham Hurd, a 31-year library employee who was among those killed in the Emanuel AME Church shooting in June 2015. Kuszyk is a New York resident who is known for doing large public art projects, and his paintings grace walls in Berlin, Prague, London, Tel Aviv and throughout the United States.”

Every Monday, the City Paper offers a mystery photo taken somewhere in the Lowcountry. We encourage you to guess — and make sure to share your name and the town in which you live. We’ll uncover the mystery the following week and, every now and then, give a small prize.

BONUS: If you want to submit a mystery photo taken by you for us to share, send it to our mystery email address. Make sure to put “Submission” in the subject line.

PAST MYSTERIES: While the guessing time on these mysteries is over, you might like seeing some old mystery photos that readers have puzzled over. Enjoy!
