Everything but the House, Children's Hospital partner on Cincinnati-centric auction

A “Big Pig Gig” fiberglass sculpture created in 2000 for a public art exhibit in Cincinnati is part of the auction. “Miss Pencilline” was decorated by Ursuline Academy students and art teacher Patrice Trauth and Amy Burton. This art creation is decorated with 10,000 pencils, skillfully sharpened to fit the rotund form and to shade the pig’s body from light on top to dark at the bottom. (Everything but the House)

CINCINNATI (Cincinnati Business Courier) - Cincinnati Children's Hospital is partnering with online auction house Everything but the House on a sale of items with historical significance to the Queen City.

The auction, which started Tuesday and runs through Feb. 19, contains architectural items from the hospital – like cement tiles that adorned early Children's Hospital buildings or pieces of a mural designed by Eva Maddox for the Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center – as well as Rookwood Pottery tiles and pig statues from the "Big Pig Gig" in 2000 that feature decorated porcine statues that popped up around the city.

All proceeds from the auction will benefit Cincinnati Children's Hospital.
