Welcome to Charity!

'Year of the Pig' Public Art Project

In February 2019, the Chinese calendar entered the year of the pig. In celebration, The Sovereign Art Foundation launched the ‘Year of the Pig’, a public art project and fundraising initiative that presents a citywide line-up of enigmatic painted pig sculptures to engage the Hong Kong public.

 

Each pig represents a unique art piece as interpreted by some of today’s most sought-after local and international contemporary artists. At the end of the year, the artworks will be auctioned and funds given to charitable causes helping disadvantaged children in the region. Please check back for updates about how and when the pigs will be sold.

 

Pigs can be found in several locations throughout Hong Kong this year according to the schedule below, please keep checking back for updates and don’t forget to enter our monthly social media competition to win some great prizes.
