Flying Pigs Descend on Denver's Santa Fe Art District!
Come Out on Friday Evening, October 7th.
We are excited to announce that a collaboration between the VFW Art Gallery (within the Santa Fe Art District) and FFB has been arranged! 19 artists are naming and artistically 'dressing' our Flying Pigs this year! The entire flock will be on display at the VFW Post 1 in the Santa Fe Art District during their First Friday Santa Fe Art Walk event on October 7th. Our theme: FFB will not wait for when pigs fly to find a cure for blindness!
Please stop by and cast your VOTE for the People's Choice Award. Dave Aguilera, our local CBS4 Meteorologist will be one of the judges.
There will also be VisionWalk Piggy Banks available for a donation for the kids to paint and take home to begin raising funds to support the Walk! We are proud to introduce you to the first named and completed Artistic Flying Pigs below: "Per Chance to Dream" and "Baron Von Montague"! Note that several of the Flying Pigs will be awarded to the Top Fundraising Teams this year!
