Bucky on Parade Unveiled

I recently unveiled a project that I had been working on since January, 'Visible Bucky.' It was painted for an event titled Bucky on Parade, where artists submitted designs to paint a 6'6" fiberglass statue of the UW-Madison's mascot, Bucky Badger. Eighty-five artists were chosen to be sponsored by local and regional businesses and individuals, with the proceeds going to various charities. I had spent 350 hours working on it, in addition to another 100 hours by my student/assistant, Sarah Gerg. The statue is on display outside Science Hall (500 N Park St.) through September, when it will move to its permanent location, the UW Hospital. For more information, including process pics, see "Bucky on Parade" under "For the Love"
