CowParade is an international public art exhibit that has been featured
in major cities all over the world.
This website is a photo gallery about the Hungarian Cow Parade
The fiberglass sculptures of cows are decorated by Hungarian artists,
and distributed over the Budapest city centre, in public places.
Like in front of Four Season Hotel Grasham Palace, Chain Bridge, Mammut
Mall, Ferenciek tere, etc. More about Budapest Hungary
The artists feature artwork and designs specific to Hungarian culture,
as well as city life and other relevant themes.
After the exhibiton in Budapest, which lasts many months, the cows are
auctioned off and the proceeds donated to charity.
Before the auction the cows are collected to the Millenar Park Budapest.
There are a few variations of shape, but the 3 most common shapes of
cow were created by Pascal Knapp,
a Swiss-born sculptor who was commissioned to create the cows
specifically for the CowParade series of events.
The concept of "cow parade" was created in Zürich, Switzerland,
in 1998. by sculptor Beat Seeberger-Quin.
Cow Parade started its international fame when Chicago businessman
Peter Hanig organized the event in Chicago in 1999.
I took all these photos with a Sony Ericsson W810i Cell Phone's 2
megapixel digital camera,
so the quality of the photos isn't the best.
