National Pig Day!



Today is the day to celebrate this wonderfully intelligent animal. While they may take a bad rap as a 'dirty' animal they are actually quite clean. From cartoons to movies, they have found their way into our entertainment. They have appeared in art for centuries, from piggy banks to canvas, and continue to do so today. Here's a look at pigs in art...(and a photo or two too!)
