CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Crews are beginning to place decorated fiberglass around the streets of Cincinnati as part of a public art display.

The Big Pig Gig, produced by ArtWorks, is hamming it up in celebration of Cincinnati's "Porkopolis" history.

The pigs are adopted by local companies, schools and non-profits.

Twenty of the 100 painted pigs have been placed in locations such as Fountain Square, Music Hall, Washington Park, the Public Library and the Banks. All 100 pigs will be placed by July 4.
