Thanks to the hundreds of donors who responded to our call and an astonishingly generous matching grant from Chuck Stonecipher, we managed to raise over $25,000 to buy Sid’s former home and studio!!!

Thanks to all who contributed cash, art, time, hours or enthusiasm!!

We are currently working with the City of Madison and Dane County to complete the legal transfer of the property to the Friends of Sid Boyum. Stay tuned for future announcements (including one hell of a celebration party), coming soon!

In the meantime, our fundraising efforts are only beginning — even after we acquire the property, we’ll need money for renovations, art conservation and more. Thanks again to all of you for your generous community spirit — WE WILL SAVE SID’S ART!
