In 2014, some locals were trying to find a way to save the mural. The story was in The Post and Courier of Charleston.

Tex Roberts, whose uncle helped create it, was leading the effort, and “the owner, Keith Kinard, also is willing to work to save the screen, even going so far as to subdivide his land.”

Based on what I see in a May 2106 Google Street View and the 2017 aerial view, I’d guess it was torn down. :(
