12/ 06/ 04 CowParade Monaco - General Principles
"MonaCow Parade 2005" is an exhibition of decorated cows that will take place in the streets of the Principality from June 20th to September 16th 2005.
It is up to you to acquire the cows and to have them decorated, by whom you wish.
At the end of the exhibition, you can sell your cow if you wish to, and help the Association MonÃ©gasque contre les Myopathies (Monegasque Association Against Muscular Dystrophy).
How to participate
Select your cow:
The cows are presented "life-size" in three different positions. They are made of white fibreglass and are ready to be decorated.
Decorate your cow:
Once purchased, you shall adorn your protÃ©gÃ©e or have her dressed by whom you wish, artists known or not. The organisation can propose decoration projects to help you out.
Premises to decorate your cows are placed at your disposal.
The decoration is completely free, but any "direct" advertising or displaced inscriptions are prohibited.
Exhibit your cow:
Your cow will then be on exhibit during the three summer months, from June 20th to September 16th 2005, on the thoroughfares and other public places in the Principality. Visitors will be given a map allowing them to admire the whole exhibit.
Sell your cow
The event will close with an auction sale, and if you wish to you will be able to do something helpful by selling your cow that has become a work of art.
Half of the amount of the sale will go to the Association MonÃ©gasque contre les Myopathies (Monegasque Association Against Muscular Dystrophy). A quarter will go to you and the last quarter to the organisation.
