’til the Cows Come Home August 29, 2021

 My appreciation of public art continues this week with some of Moo York City’s cows on parade. Here is a map of where the 78 cows are located. The cow parade came to NYC in 2000 and I remember it well. It was fun, festive and if you do not count the defacing, tipping or stolen cows it was a good thing for the many charities that received money from the auction. This time the auction proceeds will go to God’s Love We Deliver. Here is my tip for those looking for the cows. I went to the Staten Island location and found only two cows but did end up in an informative lengthy discussion with the gentleman that works at the lighthouse museum. And it is always fun to take the ferry. Bloomingdale’s has only one cow as does Macy’s. The balance of today’s cow photos were taken at the mall in Hudson Yards. I was too hot and tired to go to Brooklyn, Queens or the Bronx. If you go – take some photos please. For those that like a bit of NYC cow parade history – here you are. MOO!

 Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama  at age 92 is still going strong. This fun, colorful exhibit at the New York Botanical Garden is on through Halloween – which makes sense since she has a great admiration for pumpkins..as do I. ‘Kusama reveals her lifelong fascination with the natural world, beginning with her childhood spent in the greenhouses and fields of her family’s seed nursery. Her artistic concepts of obliteration, infinity, and eternity are inspired by her intimate engagement with the colors, patterns, and life cycles of plants and flowers’. Along with the fun installations in the Conservatory, there are several walk through immersive installations throughout the garden. We had a great time and the beautiful weather day was like icing on the cake. I highly recommend this to all.

We decided to mix it up on our recent mini-New England zoocation. Founded in 1950, deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum is the largest park of its kind in New England encompassing 30 acres, in Lincoln, MA just 20 miles west of Boston. It was a fun adventure type of visit.
