Tonight, at an art space called New York City (confusing, we know), artist Gina Beavers is curating a "Pig Party." In the fraternity world, a pig party is a party where bros have a contest to see who can bring the ugliest date. Sounds pretty mean spirited to us, but if you replace "date" with "piece of art" (and define "art" very loosely), then it sounds ridiculous, in the best way possible. Gina says the show will feature "'secret' painting practices, awesomely 'bad' undergrad works, awfully amazing things found online, middle school art class drawings, and more!!!" And, like the original party idea, the best pig will be crowned at the end of the night. Seems like it'll be an awesome time. Check out the show tonight and get your swine on.

The details-

New York City
83 Bowery, Second Floor
