Artist Raising $250K To Fly Pigs Outside the Chicago Trump Tower

posted by Mick Lee - 

Architect Jeffrey Roberts says pigs will fly in front of Chicago's Trump Tower if he can raise $250,000.

The architect who wants to provide "visual relief to the citizens of Chicago" by blocking the Trump International Hotel & Tower's 20-foot-tall sign with golden balloon pigs has launched an ambitious fundraising campaign to make his renderings a reality.

The pigs would fly for one day only in August or September, and the big-ticket art display requires making the big pig balloons, city permits and renting a barge, among other costs.

He is collecting donations here and said if he doesn't raise the need funds, he'll donate the money to non-profits including Planned Parenthood, the National Resource Defense Council, International Refugee Assistance Program, MALDEF, ProPublica, the ACLU, The Trevor Project and the NAACP Legal Defense Fund.
