SOMETHING BIG ARRIVES IN DALLAS

2811 McKinney Welcomes Perot Museum of Nature & Science


 
DALLAS, TX - Lyda Hill, philanthropist, community supporter and owner of several prominent commercial real estate buildings in Dallas including 2811 McKinney Avenue, in conjunction with PM Realty Group (PMRG), a national, full-service commercial real estate firm and property management firm for 2811 McKinney Avenue, announces its full-scale support of the planned Perot Museum of Nature & Science at Victory Park.

On September 20, 2010, 2811 McKinney Avenue unveiled a Texas-sized banner on the west wall of the building honoring the development of the new museum on Field and Broom in Victory Park. Created by esteemed artist Douglas Rouse, the canvas mural measures 80' wide by 22' tall and depicts a Texas Tyrannosaurus Rex embracing the new museum.

The Museum of Nature & Science is the result of a 2006 merger, unlike any in the nation, of three cultural institutions-the Dallas Museum of Natural History (est. 1936), The Science Place (est. 1946) and the Dallas Children's Museum (est. 1995).

With a mission to "inspire minds through nature and science," the Museum delivers exciting, engaging and innovative visitor experiences through its education, exhibition and research and collections programming for students, teachers, families and life-long learners.

After the 2006 merger, the need for additional space became even more critical. As a result, the Museum has begun the process to expand its reach within the community by offering a second facility to address the growing need for science, math and technology education.

The Perot Museum of Nature & Science at Victory Park, designed by Pritzker Prize laureate Thom Mayne and his California architecture firm Morphosis, broke ground last spring and is expected to open in early 2013. With construction underway, Lyda Hill says she is delighted to unveil Douglas Rouse's artwork in the heart of Dallas' Uptown market. "This playful art piece is an enthusiastic show of support for our city's newest cultural inspiration and sure to inspire conversation on its own."
