New pig play piece taking shape at N.C. Museum of Art

Posted March 16

The pig is just about ready for play at the N.C. Museum of Art in Raleigh.

The art museum shot this time-lapse video of this week's installation of Spanish artist Jaime Hayon’s SCULPT. C. The interactive, colorful, pig-shaped play structure features a slide that's sized for children. I'd say it's best for toddlers and preschoolers.

It will officially open for play in the museum's park on Monday, March 20. You can find it not far from the park's main parking lot off Blue Ridge Road in west Raleigh. It's free to visit the park. Once it's open, it will be free to play on the pig too.

Right now, the pig is going by "pig." But the art museum is looking for a more playful nickname for the piece. Check out the museum's Facebook post or tweet your ideas to the museum on Twitter at @ncartmuseum with the hashtag #NCMApig. The winning nickname will be announced April 21 during a special event, Hoopla: Party in the Park.
