Cerrowire donates $50,000 to Cook Museum

The Cook Museum of Natural Science in Decatur, Alabama enables people to interact with and learn about nature.

For 100 years, Cerrowire has manufactured copper wire to power America. As a part of the company’s centennial celebration, Cerrowire has donated $50,000 to the Cook Museum of Natural Science in Decatur, Alabama, to power creativity in kids of all ages.

The donation sponsored the addition of an Everbright kinetic art installation in the second-floor lobby at the museum. The 4’ by 8’ grid of 464 adjustable LED dials that rotate endlessly in either direction through the color spectrum offers almost unlimited color possibilities for creating designs. The fully interactive wall lets people of all ages create through light.

The Cook Museum of Natural Science is a state-of-the-art natural science museum that provides a hands-on, immersive experience where people can explore, interact with, and learn about nature.
