CowParade strongly supports art education for local children. In Austin, CowParade has partnered with two organizations to paint Mini and Micro Moo cows.
Second Saturdays are for Families at the Austin Museum of Art (AMOA) make visiting the museum an enjoyable family-friendly, interactive experience. Monthly drop-in art activities give children ages 3 through 12, their parents, siblings, other family members and caregivers a chance to create a unique art project related to the exhibition on view in AMOA’s galleries.
The Mini and Micro Moos received an artistic treatment inspired by the museum’s current exhibit, Good Design: Stories from Herman Miller.
The second partner is the Children’s Blood and Cancer Center of Central Texas. Patients will have the opportunity to paint Mini Moos and Micro Moos that will be auctioned off to benefit the Superhero Kids fund.
