Meet the Cows

CowParade North Carolina 2012 featured 80 cows, all whimsically transformed by some of the regions best artists. The bovines “grazed” on public display throughout the greater Triangle from late August through mid-December 2012 and subsequently went to auction at the Battle for the Cattle Gala on February 2, 2013.

From cows like Red Hat’s “Cow-laboration,” whose black and white speckled pattern is unmistakably bovine but with a twist, to others like “Ramooses,” transformed to take on the likeness of a completely different species, each cow represents something unique about North Carolina and the artists that rendered these fantastical pieces of public art.
