The city of Chicago is engaged in an exhibition of public art unlike any seen in the city before. The city, home of the fabled stockyards, has been overrun with cows, but not ordinary cows, rather artistic cows of all sorts. NOT took a bit of time to visit with some of them and try to find out what they are doing. However, most were not very responsive, leaving the artistic interpretation to the viewer.
To Err is Human
To Moo, Bovine.
|On the Horns of a Dilemma, NOT gets gored by a hologram sticker encrusted cow.|
|NOT stops to smell the roses, or is that cowslip?|
|NOT tries to seize the cow-stle, but to no avail.|
Then after all those cows, it was time on Sprockets when we Dance! Which NOT did, along with the late Keith Haring's sculpture figures.
