Bright Idea Bucky

Behind the Design:

Bucky represents the UW and all of the education, new ideas, forward thinking and big spirit that are a part of the institution. "Bright Idea Bucky" embodies the inspiration that goes into this hard work and captures a spirit of excitement and optimism about what the future can hold. This statue was completed in an art studio, with visitors’ written ideas and inspirations incorporated onto the fabric.

About the Artist:

Kathryn Schnabel
I love trying to express the hidden spirit of things we see in our everyday lives. I enjoy working intuitively and would rather paint the 'energy' of a tree and all its seasons of growth and change instead of a recognizable tree. Art is a life-long love for me – a hobby and career combined.
