Chicago goes green! Back in 1999, Chicago started a public art exhibit, by commissioning artists to paint cows. It came to be known as Cows on Parade, and several other towns and cities have followed suit with sea animals, fairies, fishes, etc. This year in Chicago, the theme is dress forms. They are not quite as impeding or magnificent as the cows, but they are a nice little something extra to look at while walking around. Here is one that I found to be green....reusing all that plastic picnic stuff we typically throw out.
