Sovereign Art Foundation
The Sovereign Art Foundation’s (SAF) ‘Year of the Pig’ public art project will present a citywide line-up of enigmatic painted pig sculptures, each representing a unique art piece as interpreted by some of today’s most sought-after local and international contemporary artists. Once exhibited, the artworks will be sold through various means and funds given to charitable causes helping disadvantaged children in the region.
‘Year of the Pig’ will launch with the commencement of Hong Kong Art Week, with a select number of pig artworks to be unveiled at Art Central from 27-31 March 2019. Arts activities for children will be provided for visiting families.
Visitors are encouraged to keep an eye out for pigs appearing around the fair, as well as to to engage with the ‘Year of the Pig’ photo caption competition on social media. Users who upload their best photographs of the pigs on Facebook or Instagram together with a fitting caption and the hashtag #SAFPigs stand to win prizes, to be confirmed on the SAF Facebook page.
