UW–Madison in the Year 2198

Complex illustration in the style of "Where's Waldo" that depicts a futuristic UW-Madison campus with high speed rail, rockets, jet packs, and a giant Bucky Badger wading through Lake Mendota.

Our illustrator peered into his crystal ball to create this view of UW–Madison on its 350th anniversary. Yes, there will be jetpacks.

    May be 2100 AD ? 2198 will be more advanced but earth in bigger peril due to climate changes!

    Is that Illustration available in the full color mode or will there be prints? It’s a pretty sweet throwback to the city map Illustrations from the 80s/90s that mapped out the best of the best throughout the town.

    Image could have been done in the 60’s. Jetson cars. Only historic bldgs will be kept. Everything else will be replaced twice by then.

    I sure hope Picnic Point doesn’t turn into an amusement park. Definitely here for 200+ years of Paul’s Books though!

    So great to see the Delta Upsilon house still on the lake shore. Go Ducks.
