Greater Shepparton MooovingArt


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.

This exhibition of life-sized 3D fibreglass cows brings a whole new meaning to street art!
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.
