Friday's website of interest to art enthusiasts: COW PARADE

Share |
For me, it can't get any better than this: cows and art! Today's website of interest for art enthusiasts is Cow Parade. This art exhibition consists of fiberglass cows that are individually decorated by artists, architects, designers and other celebrities. The cows have gone on exhibit in major cities around the world.

Cow parade has been one of most widely viewed art exhibition worldwide by an estimated 100 million people. The exhibits have also managed to raise 20 million dollars for charity. To borrow these words directly from their website, "The cow is a universally beloved animal. The cow represents different things to different people around the world-she's sacred, she's historical, she connects us to our past-but the common feeling is one of affection. There is something magical about the cow that transcends throughout the world. She simply makes everyone smile." The website has a slide show of the all the cows that have been on parade and answers to their most frequently asked questions.
