Overview


COW PARADE - the Phenomenon that swept Chicago last summer is coming to Stamford, Connecticut. Imagine it - more than 500 life-size fiberglass cows, decorated by renowned artists and local school children alike, on display in parks, plazas, and other public spaces throughout Stamford. Following the 1999 CowParade in Chicago, the most successful public art program in that city's history with an estimated 10 million views, CowParade Stamford begins in mid-June and continues for 10 weeks. And at the end of it the cows are auctioned for charity. Chicago's cows raised more than $3.4 million.

COWPARADE STAMFORD is an art book, a souvenir, a cow-lover's fantasy, perfect companion to the exhibit, a quirky record of a unique civic moment. And a lively full-color compendium of how hundreds of artists, known and unknown, see the cow. Featuring full-color photographs, plus introductions, artist profiles, extensive captions, and more.

Meet the Author

Jennifer (“soft and white”) Griffin is the author of Humpty Who? and the mother of two. As a Jennifer—the most common name of her generation— she has been obsessed with names her whole life. She and her husband live in New York City with their son, Luke (“worshipful”), and daughter, Josephine (“God adds”). 

Thomas J. Craughwell is an author and problem solver. He traced the evolution of Manhattan urban legends (Alligators in the Sewer); sorted out fact from fiction in old wives tales (Do Blue Bedsheets Bring Babies?); identified the patron saints of bloggers, vegetarians and hangovers (This Saint Will Change Your Life); and resurrected a long-forgotten story from 1876, when a gang of hapless Irish immigrant counterfeiters tried to kidnap the body of Abraham Lincoln--and almost got away with it (Stealing Lincoln's Body). Tom lives in Bethel, Connecticut.
