HQHQ Project Space April 6 – 24, 2015
Closing Reception April 25, 2015 6 – 9pm
Gallery Hours Sat, Sun 1-4 PM
A Chicken and a Hog were sauntering down the street when they passed a diner advertising Ham and Eggs, 25 Cents!
“Sounds like a bargain,” approved the Chicken. “We could open our own restaurant! I will provide the eggs and you the ham!”
The Hog was dismayed by the suggestion and responded, “Its all very well for you to be pleased with a dish of Ham and Eggs. For you it’s all in a days work to provide eggs but for me, providing ham represents a genuine sacrifice.”
The values of the base cost lean calculations are determined by individual packer’s lean value buying programs, which are based on the backfat and 6 to 7 square inch loineye area both measured at the 10th rib.
Calculations include Producer Sold negotiated and swine or pork market formula and Packer Sold negotiated and swine or pork market formula data from the National Prior Day Slaughtered Swine Report (LM_HG201.txt).
Monthly total and weighted averages represent slaughtered hogs reported for the month.
During the course of 3 weeks in April, HQ Objective is manufacturing 2 series of works based on the National Daily Base Lean Hog Carcass Slaughter Cost put out by the United States Department of Agriculture. During this time, the gallery will represent a production space of arts manufacture. The space will remain open to visitation according to normal business hours, and will conclude with a closing reception on April 25th.
