Bon Voyage Muriel the Sea Cow
It’s been a wonderful winter with Muriel, but we must now wish her ‘Bon Voyage!’ as she heads back to Dana-Faber and her position in Cow Parade New England. Join us at Casco Bay Artisans and artist Russ Cox as we send her off in style with a Yacht Rock themed party on Saturday March 18th from Noon – 3pm. We’ll boogie down and take a few selfies as we wish Muriel fair winds and flowing seas.

See you on the wharf!


What is CowParade? A public art event for people of all ages and backgrounds, featuring life-size cow sculptures, which are painted and transformed by local artists, displayed in pastures throughout cities for residents and tourists to visit, and sold for the benefit of local nonprofit organizations. CowParade New England presented by Herb Chambers will bring 75 life-size cows, designed by a range of artists, to high trafficked landmarks throughout the region to celebrate 75 years of progress and impact made possible by the Jimmy Fund community. All proceeds directly benefit Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s efforts to defy cancer.
