Life-size Bronze Sculptures by George Lundeen
The town of Smithfield proudly boasts the country’s largest collection of life-size bronze statues by acclaimed sculptor George Lundeen. The Lundeen statues are a generous gift from former Smithfield Foods CEO and Smithfield native, Joe Luter III.

Each life-size statue of a market hog was painted by an artist to reflect an aspect of the town’s rich history, culture & recreation. The The Porcine Parade is a project of Smithfield 2020, a non- profit organization sponsored by Historic Smithfield, Inc. and established to impact the economic and cultural vitality of the Downtown Smithfield Historic District
