Celebrating the Year of the Pig

Exhibition Website

Feb 4 2019 - Jul 28 2019

This exhibition features depictions of pigs created by Chinese artists within the last 2,000 years. 

Particularly notable are a sixth-century pottery figure of a stout pig in recumbent position and two sets of Chinese zodiac animals, which illustrate both the universal appeal of pigs as a symbol of wealth and the integral role that they played in human life.
