That is "Some Pig"!
It's hard to miss the lovely pig covered in ornate drawings and intricately illustrated Latin phrases sitting near our main desk at the library. Whether you have walked by and wondered quietly to yourself or asked us about her, she has a certain presence and an inspiring past.
"Porcus Latinium" was created in 2003 by artist Matthew Gibbs as part of "The Really, Really Pig Show." The show was the idea of Brandon Artists' Guild member and well-known artist Warren Kimble, who with other Guild members, worked to promote the arts and culture of the Brandon community in a cooperative, community-wide project. "P.L." was one of 40 life size fiberglass pigs painted and then sold to benefit their schools' art programs, the Brandon Artists' Guild and other community projects.
In 2004 Essex resident and friend of Evergreen Erb, StaciAnne Grove, purchased "P.L" in support of Brandon's efforts to promote the arts. For almost 10 years the pig decorated Ms. Grove's home. Last spring she generously donated the stunning sculpture to the Deborah Rawson Memorial Library.
Now that she calls DRML "home", we invite you to help give our pig a name of her own. Enter your name suggestions into the bean pot by Sunday, March 23rd. We will decide the winning name at our monthly staff meeting. Stay posted for more pig-inspired projects and fun!
