DETROIT, Oct. 22, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company, showcases the artistic talent of its team members as works from more than 40 employees from around the world are featured in the 4th annual "Beyond The Cube" employee art exhibition. The exhibition features works from a variety of mediums, including photography, painting, fiber art, jewelry, video and woodworking.
The exhibit is open to the public between the hours of 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. from October 25 through November 7. It is located in the AIREA STUDIO on the first floor of Compuware World Headquarters at One Campus Martius in downtown Detroit. In addition, Compuware invites the public to attend the opening reception on October 24, from 4 to 7 p.m., to preview the works and meet a number of the contributing artists.
Creative and cultural programs such as Beyond the Cube celebrate Compuware employees' abundant talent and creativity, and the diversity and spirit that drive the innovation of the company. "The creative efforts of our employees have a marked and positive impact on the participating employees, their co-workers and teams. For many, their artistic pursuits encourage them to be more open, flexible, innovative and focused in their professional ones," explained Meg Heeres, Compuware's Art Program Manager and Curator. "When employees see the creativity of colleagues across the globe, it is both inspiring and unifying."Heeres developed the exhibition for the company four years ago. Initially featuring only the works of Compuware's Detroit-area employees, it was opened up to employee submissions from around the globe in 2012; this year the exhibit features contributions from employees in several countries spanning four continents. The number of submissions exceeded available display space and Heeres emphasized diversity of artwork and subject matter in order to cull the 40 works featured in the exhibition. "I am most interested in the range of talent and creativity," she said. "The success of this exhibition is not the number of artists or works or visitors, but that it encourages employees to maintain a creative practice whether on or off the job.
