Cows about Cambridge is a spectacular public art event that weaves its way across the city for 10 weeks in spring 2020. Cow sculptures, each one individually designed by an artist and sponsored by a business, form a free, fun, family-friendly trail of discovery for local people to explore and enjoy.

After entertaining and bringing people together, the legacy of Cows about Cambridge continues as many of the sculptures will be auctioned to raise vital funds for local children’s charity, Break.

Be part of this unique event that will raise money for local children’s charity Break and deliver significant economic, social and cultural benefits to the city.

Schools, colleges and community groups from across Cambridgeshire are invited to join in the fun. Adopt and design your own smaller Cow sculpture – the mini moo – while taking part in our county-wide Learning Programme for children and young people.

The sculptures gives an exceptional, creative opportunity to engage pupils in important topics – from environmental issues and the natural world, to citizenship, and health and wellbeing, to name a few.

Get creative in the classroom and see your 3d masterpiece on the art trail in the city’s cultural hubs. After 10 weeks on public display, it’s yours to keep in its forever pasture in your school, college or community.

“I love Wild in Art events because my artwork will be seen by so many people. I’m all about taking art out of the gallery, making it accessible to everyone & putting it on the street.”
