In the spring of 2017, Smithfield & Isle of Wight Tourism sponsored a contest for the creation of our very own LOVEwork. The winning designer, Meagan Pugh, describes her design: “Inspired by what we are best known for…Ham, well Bacon, I envision our LOVEwork to be in the “pop art” vein and interactive. Visitors can take photos their friends and family “taking a big bite” out of a slice of bacon (while taking a big bite out of all there is to do in Smithfield). We might even be the world’s largest bacon statue!” Share your images with us using #smithfieldlove.
