Alfred Kitsch-Hog

AlfredAlfred was part of "The Pigs in the City" promotion that was run by the Saskatchewan Abilities Council in association with SaskEnergy in 2002 in Saskatoon, and in 2003 in Regina. We don't know which city created Alfred. Saskatoon had 30 pigs, while Regina had 23.  Local artists developed the themes for each pig, and then sponsors came on board, paying to have the pigs created.  Both projects saw a lot of creativity from local artists and businesses. Alfred and his brothers and sisters did a lot of great work for the Sask Abilities Council. The pigs were auctioned off at the end of the promotion, with all proceeds going to the Sask Abilities Council.  "Pigs in the City" has been run in several cities across North America in the past.
