COW PARADE - the Phenomenon that swept Chicago last summer is coming to New York. Imagine it - more than 500 life-size fiberglass cows, decorated by renowned artists and local school children alike, on display in parks, plazas, and other public spaces throughout New York City. Following the 1999 CowParade in Chicago, the most successful public art program in that city's history with an estimated 10 million views, CowParade New York begins June 15 and continues for 10 weeks. And at the end of it the cows are auctioned for charity. Chicago's cows raised more than $3.4 million.

COWPARADE New York is an art book, a souvenir, a cow-lover's fantasy, perfect companion to the exhibit, a quirky record of a unique civic moment. And a lively full-color compendium of how hundreds of artists, known and unknown, see the cow. Featuring over 250 full-color photographs, plus introductions, artist profiles, extensive captions, and more.
