CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

The Flying Pig Marathon celebrated its partnership with the University of Cincinnati on Friday by donating a Flying Pig statue.

The statue was from ArtWorks' Big Pig Gig, which featured flying pig statues throughout downtown Cincinnati last year.

The pig was designed by Melinda Sekela, Graphic Communication Design Co-Op student at the University of Cincinnati. Joshua Mindlin, a DAAP computer graphic artist, is the artist.

The pig is located in front of Calhoun and Siddall Dorms along Calhoun Street, just west of University Park Apartments South.
