Thank you for helping with Bright Idea Bucky! Bucky on Parade was a public art event that featured 85 life-size, fiberglass Bucky Badger statues placed around the Madison, WI, area during the summer of 2018. My idea involved asking the community to write and draw their answer to the question ‘what bright idea can I contribute to the world?’ I collected these writings on fabric, dyed it to match the design, and collaged the fabric onto the statue. I worked on Bright Idea Bucky from January through mid-March, and you can see the steps in his progress below. If you don't see your idea on the statue, please know it's there! Some of the writings were long or oddly shaped, so I cut them into smaller pieces and used them that way. Check out the coffee table book with photos and info on all the Bucky statues!
