About the painted cows
The outdoor art project, CowParade Kansas City, hosted more than 300 painted cows all over the area through September to November 2001. For the record, the display sites included Crown Center, as well as the Country Club Plaza and Johnson Community College. The exhibit, which also included works by elementary school students, paid tributes to Salvador (“Cowlvador”) Dali, among others. After a 15-week public display on the streets and in parks, many of the painted cows went to auction sales. For the very first time in CowParade history, Kansas City hosted a live auction followed by an online auction. Sotheby’s handled sales of approximately 60 cows on October 5, 2001. About 8 to 12 painted cows from each event are reproduced and become part of the collection.
