A Puggy Pal Is Up For Grabs By ArtWorks Cincinnati
Is it a pig or is it a dog? It’s both!
A Puggy Pal was designed and created by Stephen Smith and Jennifer Acus-Smith and sponsored by an Anonymous donor in honor of Therapy Pets of Greater Cincinnati. You’ll notice that he’s wearing the green vest that Therapy Pets’ pups often don! This is one of eleven pigs that ArtWorks is auctioning off as a part of Secret ArtWorks: When Pigs Invade. A portion of the proceeds from this auction will go towards supporting ArtWorks’ programming while the rest will go towards supporting Therapy Pets of Greater Cincinnati.
What is Secret ArtWorks?
Well, on Friday, November 16, hundreds of 5” x 7” pieces of art will be up for grabs at Secret ArtWorks: When Pigs Invade! They’re all made by locally, nationally or internationally acclaimed…but the SECRET part of this is that you won’t know the identity of the artist unless and until you purchase the piece. Pretty sneaky!
All proceeds from the event will benefit ArtWorks Cincinnati, an award-winning nonprofit that empowers and inspires the creative community to transform everyday environments through employment, apprenticeships, education, community partnerships, and civic engagement. Since 1996, ArtWorks has employed more than 2,500 youth and 500 professional artists.
