 Virtual Event: Curator's Choice: Prize Piggies

In this presentation, Assistant Curator Christina Michelon will take a closer look at Prize Piggies, the 1891 chromolithograph designed by Arlington-based artist Susanna Adams Winn and published by Louis Prang & Company. Dr. Michelon will give an overview of the printing process and provide some insight into the popularity of the work. Then, as now, pictures of cute animals provided comfort and entertainment in a changing world.
