Bubble Party

Saturday, July 6 at 9:00 a.m. to Noon, 237 Waubesa Street

It’s a hands-on day as we scrub years of dirt off the Boyum Sculptures in the backyard of Waubesa Street. Come with a soft scrub brush and a bucket. For sensitive skin, bring rubber or latex gloves, and be ready to get wet! If anyone has a clean pump garden sprayer, it would also be useful. Bring bug spray and sunscreen as needed, wear shoes, no flip-flops, adults and kids welcome.

We’re selling a house — for a good cause.

Own a piece of Madison history!  The Friends of Sid Boyum have decided to sell Sid’s former house at 237 Waubesa Street.  Don’t worry, we are still saving the 26 sculptures in the backyard, and are currently busy finding new homes for each of them.  All proceeds from the sale of the house will go toward a conservation fund for the sculptures.  We’re accepting offers until May 31, 2018.
