The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

Cow Parade Leon 2

Exhibit on main square of Leon, Guanajuato. Mexico.
For Art, For Charity, For Fun
CowParade is the world’s largest public art event. From Chicago and New York in 1999 and 2000 to Kansas City and Houston in 2001 and London in 2002, CowParade continues to evolve, not just in size, but in creativity and quality of art. While the cow sculptures remain the same, each city’s artists are challenged by the art from past events, inspired by the cultural influences of their respective cities, and moved by their own interpretation of the cow as an art object.
CowParade is not meant to be high art, however. It is first and foremost a public art exhibit that is accessible to everyone.


Gracias por su visita / Thanks for visiting.

The Cow Parade was nearby in Dayton, Ohio a few years back. I remember the cows were painted in many different colors. I like your color example.

Ah, the Cow Parade comes to Mexico! The only time I've seen these in real life was in Edinburgh, Scotland, and they really brightened up the city...
