Watch Out for the PIGShibition!

If you’re headed to Fayetteville for a Razorback game, or for any reason now through fall, make sure to watch for giant painted pigs all over town. They are locally-made fiberglass sculptures that are part of PIGShibition.

PIGShibition is a community art project helping to raise funds for the Ozark Literacy Council. The goal is to heighten the awareness of community literacy issues through the creative work of local artists. Some of the big pigs are already on display throughout the city.

You can see them at ARVEST bank on the downtown square; BHK Café on East Square Plaza; Clinton House Museum; Drake Field terminal building; Destinations Caudle Air Freight, and Psychology and Counseling Associates on Sunbridge Drive. At 10 a.m. on Thursday, another will be unveiled at the Walton Arts Center garden.

These cool custom works of art will be displayed throughout the city during the summer and fall. The fun culminates on Oct. 24 at a Piggies Go to Market event at the Town Center, where the pigs will be auctioned for the Ozark Literacy Council charity.
