In partnership with the African American Museum, Dallas, the Perot Museum of Nature and Science has announced 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 Staircase Project is presented by Kroger. To spotlight the artistic talent in the Dallas/Fort Worth region, the Perot Museum will commission an African American creative designer who resides in North Texas to design the image. The winning designer will be awarded a prize of $5,000. The deadline to enter is Oct. 30, and the winner will be notified of his/her selection by no later than Dec. 1. There is no submission fee. For rules, details and submission instructions, visit the museum’s website at perotmuseum.org. — Becky Mayad
