The Art of the Bucky

Bucky on Parade is a free enjoy-at-your-own-pace public-art event celebrating everyone's favorite mascot. Each Bucky statue was custom-designed by a local or regional artist in 2018, each with a unique theme.

The themes celebrate many of Madisonians' favorite things including our landscape, culture, heritage, spirit and so much more.
