About this Cow: Chilies con Carne is a repetition of dancing Chilies in different colors as a symbol of Boston’s wide diversity and variety of cultures, opinions, ethnic groups and socio-economic backgrounds. It is not uncommon to hear the heat of a tune from South of the Border as one walks along the crowded streets or to taste the spice of a “Chili con Carne” as one sits down for a hearty meal. The Chilies are painted in different colors to represent Boston’s multiracial community and to add a little more spice to the mix.
