The City of Cape Girardeau Public Art Committee launched the 7th public outdoor sculpture exhibition on Thursday, April 9, 2020. The location of the exhibition spans the Broadway Corridor, a nine-block span in downtown Cape Girardeau, Missouri. This area is home to locally owned businesses that bring flavor and matchless experiences. Places such as the city hall, the federal courthouse, Southeast Missouri State University, the Marquette Tech District and Media Row are also found in Cape Girardeau’s downtown.

Dana Turkovich, curator at the Laumeier Sculpture Park led the jurying process of the 2020 Cape Girardeau Outdoor Sculpture Exhibit with input from the Public Art Committee; a group that consists of representatives from the Arts Council of Southeast Missouri, Old Town Cape, City of Cape Girardeau, and Chris Wubbena, professor of Sculpture at Southeast Missouri State University. 

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 Downtown Cape Girardeau.

JUROR: 


  This year's juror is Dana Turkovic. In 2005, Turkovic received her Master of Fine Arts from Goldsmiths College-University of London in curatorial studies, and a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Webster University, St. Louis in 1998. Turkovic has organized exhibitions in Athens, Baku, Los Angeles, and New York, in alternative spaces in London and Oxford and in St. Louis at the Contemporary Art Museum and White Flag Projects. Turkovic was chosen as Guest Curator by the Oklahoma Visual Arts Coalition for Art 365, a triennial of Oklahoman Artists. Turkovic created two recent exhibitions for New Dehli-based artists Raqs Media Collective in 2015 and Gigi Scaria in 2016 and a recent exhibition entitled, How We See: Materiality and Color. During her tenure, she has overseen acquisitions and commissions by Tom Huck, Ken Lum, Tony Tasset, Farid Rasulov, and Marie Watt. Her upcoming projects include collaborations with Los Angeles-based artist Sam Falls, and a travelling exhibition of Mark Dion's work with Storm King Art Center, New York.


 
At the Laumier, Turkovic has raised the profile of the museum and curated cutting edge exhibitions, such as one of her first exhibitions, Electric is the Love. This exhibition featured local artists working with technology, and put outdoor sculptures indoors. Of this project, Turkovic says she wanted to "create an exhibition that was unlike anything Laumeier has hosted in the past".
