Space Cow Artistic Cow Parade Statue in Steelton

Space Cow Artistic Cow Parade Statue in Steelton Pennsylvania
The Cow Parade is one of the largest and most successful public art events in the world. All of the cows in the parade are life-size and were painted by various artists. They are then put on display, sold or auctioned off to raise money. Individuals, groups and companies can sponsor an artist and/or artistic cow design.

According to their web site, over 250 million people worldwide have seen at least one of their artistic cows on display. I know here in south central Pennsylvania, I have seen them a few times...mainly at local tourist attractions and events.

We love street art and when we travel...we try to document what we see. Luckily for us, Harrisburg Pennsylvania and the surrounding area has several of the commissioned pieces that have been featured in the Cow Parade. If you want to see a few of the other artistic bovines that we've located in the area, you can read our previous Cow Parade feature on that.

While running around the Harrisburg area...we spotted another cow and today we're documenting it right here on our blog. We know from past experience...that other's are on the hunt for these adorable bovines too!

This particular bovine is called SPACE COW by the artist Andrew Cerjanic from the East Pennsboro Area Senior High School. You'll find it located in the front of the Steelton Municipal Building in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. This is a life-size bovine that features beautiful hand-painted artwork on all sides.

Depicted you'll see the United States of America flag, the planet earth, various planets and stars, the moon, etc. Around the cow's neckline you'll see a flaming garland. This is one of the most colorful ones that we've seen so far. Beautiful indeed!!!
