bright-stars.jpgThe University of Texas Permian Basin is honored to create and house an outdoor plaza to host the “Bright Stars Memorial” memorializing those victims that were affected by the August 31, 2019 shooting. UT Permian Basin will also commemorate its 50th anniversary in this high-profile, greenspace addition to the campus on the corner of JBS Parkway and 42nd Street.

This outdoor plaza will contribute to enhancing the beautification efforts on one of the most highly-trafficked intersections in the city which was so intricately connected to the August 31st incident. Through a partnership with the City of Odessa and Odessa Arts, the centerpiece will be a lighted-cylinder art installment that pays tribute to the victims.

We ask that members of the community help in creating a meaningful and unforgettable space, intended to be beautiful, functional, and significant – a place for the community to gather and reflect. Please consider giving a meaningful gift in honor of those affected to the “Bright Stars Memorial” Plaza.
