The 2014 Cape Girardeau Outdoor Sculpture Exhibit was juried by the Public Art Committee. This group consisted of representatives from the Arts Council of Southeast Missouri, Old Town Cape, Cape Girardeau Area Chamber of Commerce, and the City of Cape Girardeau. Chris Wubbena, Professor of Sculpture at Southeast Missouri State University, led the jurying of the 2015 exhibit. He has exceptional experience in creating sculptures, and jurying exhibitions.

By hosting the Outdoor Sculpture Exhibit on Broadway, the Committee hopes to achieve two primary goals: increase the number of arts-related activities within the region and provide an additional revitalization strategy for Old Town Cape.

"The artists included in this exhibition represent a cross section of contemporary sculpture. From the formal abstraction of Beth Nybeck, to the interwoven narratives of Chris Wubbena and the whimsical constructions of Dan Perry, my intent was to seek works that would best encourage a wide range of interpretations and dialog for this inaugural exhibition. What these artists have in common is a great sensitivity to the integration of form, expression, materials and craft and it was a great pleasure to have the opportunity to select significant works from both early and late career artists for this exhibition."
