University of Wisconsin mascot Bucky Badger will be out in force across Madison and Dane County this summer − in the form of 85 six-foot-tall statues that were transformed by local and regional artists. 

Bucky on Parade, which officially launches with unveiling of the statues on Monday morning, is scheduled to run through Sept. 12. 

The free public art project is being produced by the Madison Area Sports Commission with support from dozens of organization and business partners, including the Wisconsin State Journal.
