Public Art: Why Buy the Cow?

April 30, 2009 | By | Reply More

In case you fell in love with one of the bovines in La Jolla’s CowParade and feel that you must have it, I have just learned that they will be auctioned at a fundraiser on Saturday, July 11 from 6pm – 10pm at the newly opened Robert Paine Scripps Forum at Scripps Institution for Oceanography. Proceeds will benefit The Zoological Society of San Diego and Rady Children’s Hospital.

Tickets for the event, priced at $150, went on sale today and are going fast. CowParade La Jolla is part of the world’s largest public art exhibition. CowParade has been held in 55 cities around the world since the first event in Chicago in 1999. More than 100 million people have attended CowParade events, which have raised more than $25 million for charities.

So get mooving and get your tickets.

About the Author ()

I live in La Jolla and I'm a travel writer, so in addition to enjoying my home town's great weather, beautiful surroundings, and range of cultural and recreational options, I also see La Jolla - and the rest of San Diego - as a travel destination. And what I see sometimes drives me batty. People vacation in La Jolla, but don't take advantage of everything our community offers, so I decided to start this blog and provide insider advice for out-of-towners. Hey. I figure if I can write insider tips about exotic destinations on Authentic Luxury Travel, I ought to be able to lead readers off the beaten path that starts just outside my front door. In the process, I'm having fun revisiting my favorite places and discovering some new ones. Travel writers are naturally snoopy, and this blog is my excuse to have a good ol' sticky beak around my home town. I hope you find it helpful. If you are coming to La Jolla or another area of San Diego and would like my help in planning your trip, please read "Need Help Planning Your Trip" and then email me at ehansen298@aol.com.
