Art Academy rising Illustration senior, Sienna Gregory was the winner in the "Big Pig Gig" Competition this late spring semester in the Art Academy's Illustration IV class. The students in the class were each asked to create a pig concept which would be applied to the surface of a precast fiberglass pig. This Gig's theme is the World Choir Games which will be held in Cincinnati this summer July 2 through 6 . Sienna's "pig" is made up of brightly colored ear buds used with iPods. Her solution goes beyond a nation's traditional music to a very contemporary, global delivery system that people all over the world are familiar with, iPods. Sienna's "iPig" is universal in the truest sense. Troy Brown (former AAC Community Education Director), Dr. Gregory Stewart (AAC VP of Enrollment Management), and Diane Smith (AAC Academic Dean) were the judges of the class competition. The Big Pig Gig pigs will be displayed in Cincinnati during the the World Choir Games in July and Sienna's "Ipig" can be found downtown on Vine Street near the corner of 12th Street. The Art Academy congratulates Sienna and feels well represented by Sienna's design!
Due to the overwhelming positive response to Sienna's iPig" she has received a special commission to create a pig for the Drop Inn Center of Cincinnati. See Sienna's design below!
