Seven feet long from tail to nose, they are on a mission to educate visitors about the area’s rich heritage, fantastic beaches, and amazing attractions. Their leader, Capitan Will B. Cooked, has been nominated as the Venice Art Center Pigs in Paradise Ambassador. There is also Elvis Pigsley, Andy Warhog , Pigcasso, Mr. Main Street, etc. The lovely creatures will not stay here forever - at the end of April 2005, the pigs will be auctioned off for charity.
My favorite? The pig in front of the wine store (at the corner of Venice Avenue and Nokomis Avenue) called Swine Connoisseur.
