Eye of the Collector Contest
It’s time to cast a vote to select the final collector for the Perot Museum’s first full-scale, self-curated exhibition, Eye of the Collector.After entries poured in over the last month, an impressive group of judges stepped in to narrow the contestant pool down to 15 finalists – five collectors from each of the three categories of “Best Youth” (17 and under), “Most Unique” and “Most Visually Stunning.” Their collections range from vintage Texas and pop-culture curiosities, to connections with the past and simple objects gathered over family vacations. Now through March 25, it’s up to the public to decide the People’s Choice winner, whose collection will be featured in the much-anticipated Eye of the Collector exhibition, which runs April 16 - Sept. 5, 2016. In addition, the three finalists’ collections (one from each category) will be displayed.
