And to immortalize the event, a full-color picture book has been published to showcase these bovine beauties. 100 full-color pictures show off the creatively, color coated cows which adorned the side-walks, parks, and streetcorners of San Antonio. The a-MOO-sing, fiberglass creations were decorated by hundreds of local artists, professional and amateur, from throughout San Antonio and South Texas. The cows were sold at a live and online auction at the conclusion of the event for the benefit of the American Cancer Society and the City of San Antonio Office of Cultural Affairs, which supports local arts in the community, Therefore, CowParade, San Antonio is the only official record of the event since all of the animals have been sold. CowParade is the worlds largest public art event. From Chicago and New York in 1999 and 2000 to Kansas City and Houston in 2001, CowParade continues to evolve, not just in size, but in creativity and quality of art. While the cow sculptures remain the same, each citys artists are challenged by the art from past events, inspired by the cultural influences of their respective cities, and moved by their own interpretation of the cow as an art object.
