Cow Parade Geneva!

July 2005

Cow Parade Geneva

After the success of the Zurich, Chicago, New York, Brussels and London ?Cow Parades?, some hundreds cows will invade Geneva from 21 June till 30 September 2005.

The presence of cows in the city center is rather surprising and will prompt people to reconsider art in a new form. So, from 21 June till 30 September, a hundred life-size cows will be placed at various points in Geneva.

The idea behind this event is very original. The organizers of the ?Cow Parade? propose white cows which are acquired by private patrons and sponsors and than decorated by the companies themselves or artists for the occasion

Strollers and tourists will thus be able to discover and enjoy these masterpieces one-by-one and will be invited to vote for their favorite cows by SMS. When they are retired from the city center, these cows will be put out to graze at the Geneva Fair, from 10 to 20 November 2005, where they will finally be auctioned off.

All sales proceeds will be donated to two organizations ? the ?Action Sabrina? (assistance to children with cancer) and ?Children Action? (Foundation for Child Welfare and Humanitarian Action)

Another good reason to visit Geneva this summer!
