CowParade Kansas CityBook - 2001
As with every CowParade, the sculptures in CowParade Kansas City are totally original, created by local artists and sponsored by local businesses. Each city mounts a street- and plaza-side display of approximately 300 cows, every one of which is featured in full-color in the book. Each cow-from Kansas City's 18th
& Bovine to it's Barbecue Bull, will be labeled with the artist, the sponsor, and the cow's location.
Since its first staging in Zurich, Switzerland, in 1998, CowParade has been hugely successful in each of its host cities. Post-parade auctions of the sculptures generated $3.5 million in Chicago and $4 million in New York. Proceeds from Kansas City's CowParade will benefit local youth education programs.
