Bucky on Parade Recap: bucky.exe

Filament Games | Educational Game Developer

A summerlong public art event hosted by the Madison Area Sports Commission, Bucky on Parade is a citywide exhibition of 85 life-sized Bucky Badger statues designed and created by talented local artists. On display from May 7 – September 12, 2018, you can find where all of the statues are located using this handy interactive map…including our very own design: bucky.exe! We previously teased our participation in Bucky on Parade, and now that the statues have been officially unveiled to the public, we want to offer you all a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of bucky.exe. Without further ado…

Madisonians can visit bucky.exe anytime throughout summer 2018 by visiting the statue at 2 E Main Street, Madison, WI (a.k.a. right on the steps of the Wisconsin State Capitol!) Non-locals, we hope you enjoyed our exclusive look at the creation of our masterpiece. Special shout-out to the extremely talented bucky.exe team for their efforts, UW Credit Union for sponsoring our statue, and the folks over at Bucky on Parade for coordinating this special event. On Wisconsin!
