Greater Shepparton's Moooving Art

33 Nixon Street, Shepparton VIC 3630
Moooving Art is a unique and ever-changing public art revolution. Scattered across Greater Shepparton's parks, gardens, riverbanks and public spaces is an array of colourful, ever-changing fibreglass cows that make up the Moooving Art herd. Greater Shepparton produces a large percentage of Australia's dairy exports, making the bovine a natural choice for this unusual exhibition. There are over 90 cows in the MooovingArt herd and they are displayed outside businesses, in gardens, on poles and in buildings including the Eastbank Centre, the Shepparton Visitor Information Centre and the Council foyer. Local artists transform these sculptures to make each piece unique, or funny, or challenging. Try to spot new additions to the herd. Collect 'sightings' of each sculpture as they are regularly moved to different locations around the city. The cow herd is designed to withstand the elements, and you are welcome to pat them, but please be gentle and don't climb on them. Visit website for more information, and a list of places to find the novel bovines.
