25. Watt a Clever Cow

Capturing the hearts and imaginations of millions worldwide, Cow Parade travels to exciting cities around the globe. In 2006, the City of Edinburgh was delighted to take part and host its largest ever public art exhibition for charity. For three months visitors to the city could follow the Cow Trail through its buildings, streets and public places, experiencing the creativity and passion of the Edinburgh artistic community.

Heriot-Watt was delighted to join in the experience and our cow, Watt a Clever Cow, designed by staff and students in the School of Textiles and Design happily grazed in Edinburgh's Festival Square. Our sponsored cow now lives on campus for all to enjoy.
