Elliott Kayser: Year of the Pig
January 15, 2020 - January 2, 2022
In 2019, the Rose Kennedy Greenway Conservancy, located in downtown Boston, presented Elliott Kayser’s Year of the Pig to celebrate the Chinese Zodiac Year of the Pig. The public art installation consisted of eight ceramic swine hidden along the length of the Greenway, leading pedestrians on a treasure hunt towards Chinatown. With the sculptures, Kayser reconnects people to a shared agricultural heritage and promote sustained environmental, economic, and community health. The Fuller Craft installation exhibits five of the original eight pigs, bringing them together in a new home.
In order of appearance: Ningxiang Pig, Red Pig 1, Red Pig 2, Rongchang Pig, Wuzhishan Pig
