Eye of the Collector Exhibition
Where else can one find PEZ dispensers, Dallas Cowboys memorabilia, Star Wars mementos, Ballet Folklórico costumes, African-American dolls, wearable works of art and fascinating relics from Nancy and Randy Best all in one place? The Perot Museum of Nature and Science presents its first full-scale, self-curated exhibition called Eye of the Collector – offering everything from historical and valuable items to quirky, crafty and pop-culture pieces – from April 16 - Sept. 5, 2016 (member preview days on April 14-15). Presented by Highland Capital Management, the exhibition invites visitors to explore the reasons why people and museums collect – ranging from curiosity, connection and the thrill of the hunt, to nostalgia and creating a legacy.
