Our Vision

See RTP in a new light, up close. Art at Hub RTP cultivates a new generation of home-grown and regional talents that continue to break ground on imaginative, contemplative, thought-provoking, and interactive mediums. Here, art is one in which mixed media, computational techniques and architecture co-exist.

Why Public Art?

Public art is a well-established part of successful destinations, developments, downtowns and neighborhoods throughout the United States and internationally. Public art adds vibrancy to public spaces and incorporates local culture and history into the fabric of regional destinations.

As Research Triangle Foundation of NC leads Research Triangle Park into its seventh decade, incorporating key elements such as public art to create vibrant public spaces and amenities will anchor RTP as a premiere innovation district and become a component of RTP’s overall strategy to adapt to the changing workplaces of the future and the growth patterns of the Triangle region.

Berlin Wall at Frontier RTP

About the Piece

A piece of the Berlin Wall was graciously loaned to Frontier RTP by Gordon Smith. The monumental piece was originally displayed in the Exploris Museum in Raleigh, NC before making its way to the atrium of Frontier RTP where it sits today.

Bob Geolas, former CEO of Research Triangle Foundation said “Gordon called me when I was at RTP and asked if I had any thoughts about [the piece’s] future. We were just opening Frontier RTP and I suggested that we make it a feature in the lobby. What better way to say we were breaking down walls and entering a new frontier.”
