Frontiers of Flight Museum will present A New Frontiers' Gala. The event will feature space pioneer Dr. Sian Proctor as guest speaker. Proctor is a geoscientist, educator, explorer and artist – and the first black woman to pilot a spacecraft, the SpaceX Inspiration4, the first all-civilian orbital mission.

The gala will also serve as an introduction to Frontiers of Flight Museum’s new Chief Executive Officer Abigail Erickson-Torres, who will conduct a Q&A with Proctor, as well as outline Destination: Frontiers, the museum’s plan to enter into a new era. The Destination: Frontiers initiative will provide three pillars of focus that will allow the museum to sustain operations, re-ignite interest and build capacity for future generations to enjoy. The changes include bringing more diversity and inclusion to exhibits, focusing on aerospace STEM education and improving the guest experience while at the museum.

The event will be hosted by community builder and leader Toni Brinker. Presenting sponsor JSX, the museum’s next-door neighbor at Love Field, will host a VIP reception prior to the main event, then guests will enjoy gourmet cuisine from Chef Peja Krstic (Mot Hai Ba and Ichi Ni San), live music from Ricki Derek & Band, and a Wings, Watches and Whiskey live auction.
