Calling All Animal-Lovin' Artists to Seattle
July 23 through July 31

North of Seattle, Pigs Peace Sanctuary , home to over 190 rescued pigs some big, some little and other rescued animals, will make the sanctuary not only a safe haven for animals and their human friends but an art destination as well. We are encouraging artists to include a vacation trip to the great Northwest.

Artists are invited to be at the sanctuary and work during the days, Saturday July 23rd through Sunday July 31st, or you are invited to stay overnight and camp out that week for a night or two or seven... (BYOT... bring your own tent)! Vegan cooks have already promised to provide dinners for the artists each night of that week.

Works can be painted directly on buildings OR painted on wood and attached to buildings OR sculptures can be free-standing or attached to buildings OR you can send works of art to be permanently displayed. The art all needs to be animal-safe if close to the ground because piggies use anything their height as scratching posts and/or for nibbling.

If you have never been to Pigs Peace, you are welcome to visit ahead of time so that you can be inspired about how your creations can help the animals. It's about a 45 minute ride north of Seattle to the sanctuary (directions on the site), and the chosen spots will be on a first-come basis.

Contact artist and event coordinator Jules Anslow (425/252-7989, [email protected]  for information and please RSVP before July 10.

The pigs thank you for your creations.
