Title: When Cows Fly
Location: Downtown KC, MO - Barney Allis area
Artist: Denise DiPiazzo
Sponsor: Aquila Energy

The old saying “When pigs fly” has had its day. Why not cows? The artist, professional architect Denise DiPiazzo, actually explored the aerodynamics of this barnyard animal via a Leonardo DaVincian-type flying machine for cows. The cow is adorned with a set of wings constructed of wood and metal and clad in a translucent plexiglas, flying goggles and scarf. The udders are painted like jet boosters, a rearview mirror is attached on the side and a reflector light is placed at the end of the tail. Who knows, this cow may actually go airborne!

Denise DiPiazzo is an architect by profession who also draws and paints as outlets for creative expression. Recent works are produced on plywood panels using oil paint, monoprint stamps and gold and silver leaf.

This cow was sold in the internet auction hosted by that began on October 5, 2001, immediately following the close of the live auction and ran for approximately three weeks.
