The Institute gets involved with the St. Clair Superior Development Corporation's Year of the Pig project.
The Cleveland Institute of Art has teamed up with the St. Clair Superior Development Corporation and 33 local artists to promote public art, Asian culture and the St. Clair Superior neighborhood. The SCSDC established the year the Year of the Pig project in 2006 to support local artists and display their work in the public realm. The Year of the Pig project includes 40 life-size fiberglass pig sculptures designed by National Medal of Arts recipient Viktor Schreckengost '29 and the Cleveland Institute of Art. Each sculpture is decorated with designs by 33 different local artists, making each sculpture unique.
The Cleveland Institute of Art sponsored the project and received a pig to decorate and display. The Institute's pig is based on a Schreckengost sketch that was translated by Juli Miller, who graduated in May from the Institute, into 3D CAD so that the master could be made. With material and process support coming from Nottingham-Spirk Design Associates, the Institute pig was designed and implemented by Shane Vanderlinden, a technical assistant in Industrial Design and employee of the famed design firm. The finished pig dubbed "Full Circle" uses imagery inspired by Schreckengost's famous "Jazz Bowl," that he created in 1930 at the request of Eleanor Roosevelt. The pigs were unveiled on May 31st at a private reception downtown attended by Schreckengost. "Full Circle" will be on display at the Institute the week of June 4th.
The SCSDC will take over St. Clair Superior and other key locations through the city on June 8 and 9 and turn them into a public art forum and cultural exchange. The pigs will be on display until the last week of August, and then be auctioned off to benefit SCSDC's cultural projects.
