WESTPORT — A canine with a porcine name.
“Piglet,” the pink, deaf and blind puppy whose story was chronicled in “Piglet Comes Home,” a book by his owner, Westport veterinarian Melissa Shapiro, was the featured guest Saturday at MoCA Westport.
The occasion was “Family Day” at the museum, where visitors were able to meet both Piglet and Shapiro.
Activities centered around a project inspired by the dog’s story — Piglet Mindset, described in a statement as “a global movement for acceptance, inclusion, empathy and kindness.”
And a mural featuring Piglet was created during the event by Norwalk artist 5iveFingaz.
Attendees also were able to explore the “Spark” exhibit on display at MoCA, showcasing artwork by kindergartners through high school students from Westport schools.
