05/ 21/ 03 CowParade Children's Program

ATLANTA, GA – May 21, 2003 – A group of over 100 students with special needs from six different schools in North Fulton have collaborated on a CowParade Atlanta cow named “MOO-nique.” A local artist painted the cow and had the children apply their own “unique” thumb prints, representing each student’s individuality. The law firm of McKenna Long & Aldrige is sponsoring the cow. CowParade Atlanta and McKenna Long & Aldrige-sponsored school programs will support artistic outreach, diversity, and cross-cultural experiences through education and the arts.
You can see “MOO-nique” and the other cows in the herd in various locations throughout Atlanta beginning June 26. More than 200 life-sized, fiberglass cows painted by local artists will stampede into Centennial Olympic Park for a three-day bovine bonanza June 26 – 28--the kick-off celebration for CowParade Atlanta. Following the celebration, the cows will be loaded into trucks and driven to their summer corrals in the Atlanta metro area and suburbs.
The cows will graze in public and private locations throughout Atlanta and the suburbs. Exact locations are being finalized. The cows will be grouped in one herd of 50-75 and multiple herds of 4 to 12 cows and will remain on display until Sept. 26.

CowParade Atlanta (www.cowparadeatlanta.com) is the Southeast debut of the world's largest public art exhibition where 200 full-sized painted cows graze in public spaces. Why CowParade? For fun, for art, for charity.
