In February 2019, the Chinese calendar entered the year of the pig. In celebration, The Sovereign Art Foundation (SAF) launched the ‘Year of The Pig’ public art project and fundraising initiative. The project delighted the Hong Kong public with a citywide line-up of enigmatic painted pig sculptures – each pig representing a unique art piece, as interpreted by local and international contemporary artists and members of the Hong Kong arts community. Local children, all participants of MIB, also contributed to the project at pig-painting workshops.
The pigs were auctioned and the project raised over US$100,000.00 for SAF’s charitable programmes. SAF would like to warmly thank all participating artists and supporting organisations for their generosity and contribution to this project.
