There is no better way to support the arts than to take part in the Greater Brandon Arts Council’s 1st Annual Pigs on Parade. This is a wonderful public art project.

The Greater Brandon Arts Council is seeking businesses and individuals who value the arts to become sponsors. They will receive a hand-painted ceramic pig to display in their place of business.

Each pig will be customized, designed and painted with the company logo and business theme. All pigs will be painted by a local artist and fired at the Pottery Patch in Valrico. The pigs will first be put on display at the Greater Brandon Arts Council’s Fall Art Festival to be held at Center Place on Saturday, November 2.

Sponsors of the pigs will receive a 15″ ceramic pig, recognition as a Corporate Member of the Greater Brandon Arts Council at annual events and link to business website in the directory along with recognition on the Greater Brandon Arts Counsel’s website. You get all of this for just $100.00

Anne Drewery, President of Greater Brandon Arts Council said, “The GBAC strives to serve as a collaborative voice for all of the creative people in the area and to support all artistic opportunities available in the area.” Drewery added, “The GBAC encourages everyone with any interest in the arts to join us in our endeavors to foster the arts throughout the community.”

So go ahead and join like-minded arts advocates such as Terry Fink Insurance, Center Place and Bill’s Pharmacy and take place in this wonderful endeavor. Help the Greater Brandon Arts Council put “Pigs on Parade” all over town!
