Cow Parade Austin, TX 2001

Bovine Stockpile

Submission concept for Cow Parade Austin, TX

Life scale 2011


This assemblage sculpture was designed for Cow Parade, a citywide festival held on the streets of Austin, TX. The piece will be on display for five months and then auctioned off to benefit the local Chldren's Hospital.

The raw cow form is made of fiberglass reinforced with rebar. It weighs 125 pounds before the toys are applied.

The cow will be completely covered with thousands of recycled, reclaimed and repurposed plastic toys, given new life as an ecologically conscious "midden" sculpture.
