If you hike up San Luis Obispo’s Islay Hill, at the top you’ll find a standing cow sculpture with binoculars pointing east. This fiberglass cow is called 'Moo With a View,' and it’s one of 101 similar artworks that appeared all over San Luis Obispo, as part of CodwParade SLO.
That was the local version of a worldwide art display founded in Chicago in 1999. Since then, CowParade has expanded to about 80 international cities. Here in San Luis Obispo County, the cows were on display from September 2016 through May 2017.
