TWO things that are celebrated in Northwest Arkansas come together to support TWO causes at the heart of Northwest Arkansas.
(PIGS + ART) + (LITERACY + LOCAL ARTISTS) = PIGSHIBITION
PIGShibition: Community Art Project is proudly brought to you by the Ozark Literacy Council in partnership with the Fayetteville Advertising & Promotion Commission.
PIGShibition is a community art project that will…
- Draw awareness to local literacy issues
- Support the Ozark Literacy Council and local artists
- Promote the work of local artists
- Beautify and promote the city of Fayetteville
Officially, 2012 is the Chinese Year of the Dragon; but in Northwest Arkansas this will be the Year of the PIG! PIGShibition, a community art project, is occupying the city of Fayetteville helping raise funds for the Ozark Literacy Council while heightening awareness of our community’s literacy issues through the creative work of local artists. Twenty-five larger-than-life PIG sculptures are being displayed around town through Spring 2013. These giant PIGS have been transformed into unique creations by local artists through sponsorships by community members and corporations. These custom works of art will continue to be on display throughout our beautiful city during the fall and winter.
The first PIG was paraded into town for the PIGmalion Preview party in June 2012 and the PIGShibition celebrations will culminate at the Piggies go to Market event on March 14, 2013.
