About the Cow Parade Kansas City
CowParade Kansas City, hosted more than 300 cows all over the area from September to November 2001. The public art show featured life-size fiberglass cows decorated by local artists. CowParade Kansas City consisted of about 300 of these cow sculptures. Hallmark Cards Inc. sponsored a herd of 10 cows painted by children and staff members. Finally, at the end of the exhibit, the cows went to auction sales. Indeed, for the very first time in CowParade history, Kansas City hosted a live auction of approximately 60 cows on October 5, 2001, followed by an online auction organized by Amazon.com. About 8 to 12 cows from each event are reproduced and then become part of the collectibles. “Art of America” creative cow, by Cynthia Hudson, integrated the Museum Edition of the Cow Parade collectibles in February 2009.
