Build the Bulldog
Help Us Create a 3D-Printed SSA Bulldog Statue!
In honor of Bulldog Day, we’re launching Build the Bulldog, an initiative to create a collaborative, crowdsourced, 3D-printed statue of the Shady Side Academy bulldog! The statue will stand more than 4 feet tall and consist of 530 blue and gold pieces that have been 3D printed or sponsored by community members and makers around the world. The finished bulldog will stand guard on the porch of the Glimcher Tech & Design Hub, greeting visitors to the Senior School as they drive on to campus. We hope to unveil the 3D bulldog statue in the spring of 2023.
