From a hamburger casserole to keeping people in my life employed on the farm and in the meat packing industry. I can remember that as a child I often visited  friends farms for up close cow encounters! So it was a no brainer for me to chose #CowAppreciationDay to celebrate and recognize this week. They really are awfully cute in "cow" kind of way. Go cook up some chicken and check out the "COW" art contest winner below. This month we also continue to celebrate "World Watercolor Month" and share with you just a bit of the watercolor art  and artography available in the ARt diSTriCt which continues to grow and expand. It remains a hub of activity for its members to connect with art lovers from around the world. The mission here at the magazine is simple: To share with you "the Art Lover" some one-on-one interviews, showcase artists, keep you informed on events, news, promotions and CELEBRATE the creative arts! This month we spotlight photographer Khalid Saeed from Pakistan.  So , take a deep breath, exhale, relax and let's enjoy Khalid's art!

COW APPRECIATION DAY - JULY 11 2017

PWP_7215ankolePWP_7215ankole

"1995 marked the beginning of the cow revolution, when herds of beef cattle everywhere decided to take a stand for the future of the bovine race. Far more intelligent than the others, Heff R. Jones (now known as Eaton Birds) took his limited grasp of his owner’s language and painted “EAT MOR CHIKIN” on a billboard. With this daring move he set in motion a movement among cows everywhere, to encourage us to eat more chicken, so we wouldn’t be eating them. Cow Appreciation Day commemorates Heff (I’m sorry, we mean Mr. Birds) and everything he’s done for cattlekind."

History of Cow Appreciation Day
Alright, it’s a fun story, but ultimately Cow Appreciation Day was the clever brainchild of the Chik-Fil-A company, creating the story of the daring cow to encourage people to skip their favorite burger joint, and come to their local Chik-Fil-A instead. So why not, let's have a little chicken on July 11 and give the cow a break for a day!

How to celebrate Cow Appreciation Day
Well this is the simplest thing ever honey! You just find your way down to your local Chik-Fil-A and indulge in a great tasting meal made with tender juicy chicken. While you’re at it, dress up as a cow and you’ll win yourself a free entrée. You might say that Eaton and his crew have been working hard with Chik-Fil-A to make the prospect of eating their feathered (ahem) friends a lot more enticing. Children get free sandwiches, adults get free entrees, and everyone goes away happy on Cow Appreciation Day!

Arts district

**From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

An arts district is a demarcated urban area, usually on the periphery of a city center, intended to create a 'critical mass' of places of cultural consumption - such as art galleriesdance clubstheatresart cinemas, music venues, and public squares for performances. Such an area is usually encouraged by public policy-making and planning, but sometimes occurs spontaneously. It is associated with allied service-industry jobs like cafes, printers, fashion outlets, restaurants, and a variety of 'discreet services' (see the back-page small-ads of almost any cultural magazine).
