12 Score & 3 Years Ago: The Unfinished Promise of Unity will open during Independence Day celebrations during the weekends of June 29 to 30 and July 4 to 7 at Mercury Studios, at 6301 Riverside Drive, in Irving.
The museum will equip visitors to leave as modern-day freedom fighters with over 100 artifacts, photographs, and historical documents, five eye-opening augmented reality experiences, and educational tools that provide a fascinating insight into our country’s history.
Mercury One’s 12 Score is an annual exhibition, following up on last year’s Rights and Responsibilities museum pop-up. For the first time, the exhibit is partnering with four world-class organizations including The African American Museum of Dallas, The Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, Frontiers of Flight Museum, and Dallas Historical Society.
The museum will also host a retail boutique of beautiful jewelry, artwork, eco-friendly accessories, and more from local African American artisans.
General admission tickets are $20 for adults, $10 for children, and $15 for seniors. VIP tours are also available with curator Courtney Mayden for $50. Tickets can be purchased online by clicking here.
