The BigPigGig 2012: Do-Re-Wee is taking place this summer, but I spotted some of the decorated pigs on Fountain Square a few days ago. This is an ArtWorks project involving many artists, designers and sponsors, with the goal of temporarily installing the pigs in time for the World Choir Games.
The original BigPigGig took place in 2000, and several of those pigs can still be spotted around town. This preview of the new batch of pigs promises more goofy fun in different media and styles. The project honors Cincinnati’s Porkopolis nickname in a fun and engaging way.
