Ukranian Village based artist J. Taylor Wallace will roast a pig in the mouth of his giant metal Sarah Palin sculpture "Tea Parody" in the evening Friday, April 20, at the opening of the Bridgeport Sculpture Garden on 35th Street. The nine foot tall piece, which doubles as an oven, will be one of 20 sculptures featured in the opening exhibition.
Bridgeport Art Center Manager Paul Levy says the Palin sculpture is not his favorite piece in the exhibition, but he does admit that it has mass appeal.
"People love that piece, and we've gotten a tremendous reception from everyone who has seen it," Levy said. "What can I say, people love Sarah Palin."
