Transcript csu> Parade Haosf <>tf Cow Parade Houston came in a large herd of over 300 cows. The cows were placed all over Houston, from uptown to downtown to the Medical Center, attracting people from all over to look at them in all their glory. It is a unique public art exhibit of life-sized fiberglass cows designed to celebrate art in the community. The beautifully decorated, fun-looking bovines were placed all over Houston from Sept. 6 through Nov. 7. Artists from all over, from the undiscovered to the highly acclaimed, submitted designs. Once reviewed and approved, they were selected by sponsors to be transformed into the bovine beauties that Houston enjoyed for two months. The cows came in three poses: grazing, sitting and standing. These hollow, unpainted fiberglass cows weighed approximately 100 pounds. The standing cows were approximately 8' long, 5' high and 2.5' wide. When installed in their exhibit locations, the cows were attached to a metal base so they wouldn't "walk away." Each cow, or herd of cows, had a sponsor or patron. These sponsors participated on different levels, from Herd Sponsor to Parade Cow Patron. Sponsors may have their cows designed by their own artist, or may select designs from those submitted to Cow Parade. The sponsors include: corporations, community groups, individual merchants and private citizens. Some patrons are Duke Energy, Reliant Energy, BP America, Inc., The Houston Chronicle and many more. After their two-month long debut, the cows were not simply discarded. Some of the cows will be sold at Sotheby's auction, while others were sold on the Amazon.com Internet auction site. The cows benefit the Texas Children's Hospital and the Texas Children's Cancer Center. The Building for Children campaign supports the $345 million dollar expansion and capital improvements program now under construction at the Texas Children's Hospital complex in the Medical Center. - Kusum Desai Deep in the Heart of Texas This cow has a musical nature and calmly observes passing traffic from where it was located off Allen Parkway. It wasn't as unique as some of the cows, but did add a certain flavor to the Houston landscape. It was painted by Gayle F. Boggess. Photo by Kusum Desai Low Ira
