St. Thomas the Apostle Episcopal Church NASA Diversity Public Artwork

Houston, Texas

Summary: St. Thomas the Apostle Episcopal Church seeks artist proposals for the commissioning of an outdoor, public memorial celebrating African-American contributions to the United States space program.

Design and construction of an interactive memorial celebrating diversity achievement in the space program. Charlie Bolden, the first African-American head of NASA and one of the first black astronauts in outer space, was a long-time and active parishioner at St. Thomas. Using this connection as a touchstone, the memorial should highlight the under-recognized and untold history of African American and minority participation in NASA, both in space and on the ground. It should reflect the mission of the Episcopal church of inclusivity and diversity.

Deadline: August 1, 2022, 6pm Central
