Sid Boyum Sculpture: Community Selection Process

Below are 6 of the photo mock-ups of Sid's sculptures, shown in their selected neighborhood locations.

The photo mockups were an important part of the community voting process for the sculpture project. First, we placed photos of all of the suitable pieces in our storefront window, with ballots and pencils outside in a weather-protected location. We asked people to vote for their favorites and to suggest locations around the neighborhood. We recieved hundreds of ballots, and an overwhelmingly positive response to the project.

Then we created the photo mockups so that neighbors could easily visualize the pieces in their final locations. This time, we placed the mockups in the storefront for voting. When we again received overwhelmingly positive consensus of opinion, we proceeded with fundraising to relocate the sculpture.

We received a Community Enhancement Grant from the City of Madison for the relocation and conservation of about a dozen of the sculptures. (website for the Community Enhancement Grant program of the City of Madison). In addition, we're creating an endowment fund for onging maintenance with donations and sales of the remaining sculptures.
