Perot Museum

Staircase Project

Spotlighting African American Leaders In Science Past and Present

 In partnership with the African American Museum, Dallas, the Perot Museum of Nature and Science is conducting a call for entries for a staircase commission to create a vibrantly colored and eye-catching site-specific creative design that celebrates African-American leaders in science – from history and modern day – who have made significant contributions to STEM (science, technology, engineering and math).

The creative design will be reproduced on weatherproof, vinyl materials and professionally installed on the Perot Museum’s large, multi-story outdoor staircase facing Field Street, a main thoroughfare into Downtown Dallas.

 

Field St. staircase design created for the special exhibition, Journey to Space.
