Chicago Cows
Visit to Chicago September 1999


Each cow was sponsored, typically by a business, often related to where the cow was located. The sponsor made a contribution to charity, bought the materials, and commissioned the artist. Each cow had a story - often udderly clever. We were sure we would remember each one. We remembered a few. Apologies for the others.
