There is so much beauty tucked away in our art collection. We are proud to offer you a glimpse into the Laurie Bieze Art Collection. Pablo Center prides itself on it’s permanent art collection filled with works of art that inspire, educate, and provide insight into the human condition. There are currently over 300 works of art in Pablo Center’s Permanent Art Collection. Named in honor of artist, Laurie Bieze whose personal motto was Shakespeare’s famous words, “To thine own self be true…”. At Pablo Center feel it is our responsibility to take on her legacy, to acquire artwork that not only reflects our community, but enhances the community; artwork that inspires, delights, questions the status quo, takes risks, gives a sense of place, explores human nature, and provokes dialogue; these are the works of art that we seek for our collection.
Pablo Center collects and displays a variety of artistic mediums, styles, prints originals, sculptures, pottery, and some artifacts that bare significance to the arts in the Chippewa Valley.
This collection is displayed throughout Pablo Center in it’s travelled hallways, busy classrooms, high-traffic office spaces, and conference rooms. It is used to inspire touring artists by gaining an appreciation of the Chippewa Valley’s natural beauty, history, and current creative culture. We consider all of Pablo Center as a work of art.
Many of the exhibiting artists decided to donate a work of their art to our permanent art collection. In doing so, they gave the gift of their artistic vision, and furthered our mission to provide significant artistic experiences to our community.
Contributions to the Laurie Bieze Permanent Art Collection enrich the art experience for anyone who walks through the doors of Pablo Center.
