July 12, 2012 (WESLACO)—The Weslaco Museum at 500 S. Texas has arranged for a new art exhibit appropriately titled, “Cow Appreciation Day”.
July 15th is National Cow Appreciation day and, that's no bull! But, it is something to "Moo" about! Our research did not find the creator, or the origin of this day, however, the museum decided to have a fun and fresh art exhibit for the remainder of the summer.
A ‘call for artists’ notice encouraged local artists to submit their interpretation of “Cow Appreciation Day”, and the response from artists interested in participating in this exhibit was excellent! The chosen artwork will be on display July 21 through August 31, 2012.
An opening reception at the museum is set for Saturday, July 21st, from 6-8 p.m. The reception is free to the public and refreshments will be served. There will be a variety of artwork from local artists chosen, as well as from the children of the Young Artists Summer Camp; they will exhibit paper mache cow sculptures they have created.
Featured artists will be present to answer questions and/or comments.
