For more than 30 years, Straube Center exhibition rooms have displayed local and international artists’ works in regularly rotating shows, and that practice will continue. However, something new was added on July 9, 2009: The Straube Center Office Park was turned into sculpture garden with “Art You Can Touch”, including large bronze, wood, metal, marble and other stone carvings by a variety of locally as well as globally well-known artists. Some of the three-dimensional art will be on permanent display while some of it will be on exhibition temporarily only. Most of it is for sale. Straube Center does not charge any commission.100% of the sales receipts go to the artists. Professional photographer and long time advocate of the arts Alisandra Wederich is the curator.
As part of the office complex’s work environment, Straube's art exhibits have proven extremely successful. Over the years, large numbers of celebrated artists have participated in Straube’s unique shows, and many more are ready to set up future shows. The sculpture gardens will add to the nurturing environment and give more exposure not only to the seekers of enjoyment in art, but to many visitors that may not normally visit a gallery. The high number of sold art to date shows how much Straube Center tenants and visitors enjoy this one-of-a-kind experience.
