CowParade is an ongoing international public art exhibit that has featured the artistry of over 5,000 artists across 80 major world cities. Fiberglass sculptures of cows are decorated by local artists, and distributed around the host city in public places such as train stations, important avenues, and parks. They often feature artwork and designs specific to local culture, as well as city life and other relevant themes. There are three styles of cows provided –standing, grazing, or reclining. Artists are selected to decorate the cows based on design ideas submitted to a committee.
