I Dreamt I Was a Dragon | Permalink

That is title of the sculpture. By local artist Irene M. Sukle. Location in 3126 St. Clair Ave. (Asia Food Market). When I was taking the picture, I had nice conversation with Katharyne (staff of SCSDC) While Katharyne was fixing something in sculpture, she explained about the sculpture and little bit information behind this project. I think she said there are 44 pig sculptures throughout the St Clair-Superior Ave area.
According to Chinese Calendar, started February is year of Pig. And St. Clair Superior Development Corporation (SCSDC) welcomes the 2007 Year of the Pig celebration to the St. Clair Superior neighborhood with a public art exhibition. All the pig are created by local artists. And to make each pig sculpture interesting, each artist created or inspired sculpture with their own interpretation and idea. The goal of this project is to promote investment in St. Clair Superior neighborhood, promote cultural awareness and support local artists. The exhibition will end by a week before Labor Day and off for auction.
