The 2015 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.

“This year’s Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition is a collection of varying themes, unique forms, and diverse artists. Each sculpture is, in it’s own way, an exploration and celebration of physical space. Whether it’s the expansive protrusions of Nathan Pierce’s Longshot, the dense constructed aggregate of Mike Baur’s Dance, the upward growing conglomerate of Sarah Deppe’s Lacuna, or the proud negative space of James K. Johnson’s Flint Hills Dreamer, the sculptures together create a unified texture along Cape Girardeau’s Broadway Corridor – a texture that is rich, honest, and earthy. Selecting such a cohesive and dynamic exhibition of such quality artists has truly been an honor and delight.”
