Cow Parade New York

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...

LETS HAVE MORE BEAUTIFUL COWS......

I love the idea of this book and its photographs. I do not agree with some reviewers who are disappointed that the book does not have all the cows listed and their locations in NYC. I think the idea of this book is to raise curiosity. Discovering them in different urban setting is part of the fun and challenge.I recommend this book whole heatedly.

A lifetime of memories

I took my grandchildren to NYC to "see the cows". They were enthralled. This book will keep the memories of their weekend in the City fresh throughout their lifetimes. The views of these whimsical bovines in situ serve as a mirror of the new milennium, with New York's fresh image as a family friendly city for current residents, old New Yorkers like myself who grew up within its five boroughs, and the millions of visitors who make New York their destination. I hope that many of the cows remain protected in the City, so that my grandchildren can bring their grandchildren to enjoy their zaniness. But if they disappear, this book has, at least, captured the moment.

THE COWS CAN STAY WITH US IN 2001!

I HAVE LOVED THE COWPARADE ALL SUMMER HERE IN NYC. FINDING NEW ONES AND TAKING THEIR PHOTOS (WITH OR WITHOUT KIDS ON THEM) HAS BEEN FUN! NOW ALONG WITH THE COWPARADE BOOK I CAN REMEMBER THE COWS INTO 2001 WITH THE COWPARADE CALENDER! NICE COLOR PHOTOS AND ARTISTS' STORIES GIVE YOU MORE INSIGHT TO OUR SUMMER BOVINES!

More Cows Please

Even though the Cow Parade book is helpful, it does not include ALL the cows. I can't believe that this author would ignore the talents of the artists not included in this book. My suggestion would be to do a second printing which includes ALL THE COWS. As a native New Yorker, I am always delighted to bump into a cow I have not seen. I certainly hope that after the auction, the purchasers of Ginger Rhinestone and Freda Stare decide to keep them right where they are. They are the best!!!!!

Join the Fun - Cow Parade New York!

This spring in New York, fiberglass cows started appearing on the sidewalks, in public plazas, in the parks... one by one at first, then -boom- an explosion of cows all over town. It's Cow Parade New York, a summer-long art project sure to make even the most jaded New Yorker smile! The cows, decorated by different artists in a variety of styles, bring some much needed fun and color to our city streets.The Cow Parade New York book explores the art installation, with details about the decoration and location of about 300 of the cows. You can use the book as a guide to find out where the cows are located... or hold on to it as a keepsake to remember your favorite cows once they are removed this fall. The photos are high-quality, and as a special "bovine bonus," the book features some light-hearted cow trivia. Put the Cow Parade New York book on your coffee table, and let the fun begin!
