Welcome Bratislava – CowParade

What can I tell you about that action? Every year some artists create special sculptures – cows.

Idea of CowParade came by Walter Knapp in 1996. His son Pascal Knapp was the creator of the three cow sculptures in CowParade which had been used in Chicago and New York at the end of the last century. After a lot of modifications, Pascal finished sculpture.

Cows are very authentic, life-size, from fiberglass.

CowParade is the world’s largest public art event.

It isn’t only art, it’s fun and also charity. To paint own cow – it comes to be in, a very prestige (or show how you are rich :o) A specially in Slovakia.)

When cows were in Bratislava, many people walk through the city and tried to find most of them. Some radios made competitions – to find special cow for each day. We walked too and made pictures some of them. You can see them here.
