The Luckey Climber is specially designed for the Westchester Children’s Museum by internationally renowned artist and artchitect Thomas Luckey, together with his son Spencer, also an artist/architect. The Climber itself is nothing like a traditional climbing structure that a child might find in an indoor or outdoor playground, rather, a Luckey Climber is a one-of-a-kind sculpture that allows children to stretch their muscles, test their limits, take safe risks, and develop confidence in their physical abilities.
Comprised of intersecting and layered platforms suspended by secure cabling and safety netting that will rise from the floor into the skylights of the museum, the structure will traverse almost the entire length of the museum building.
Luckey Climbers have been constructed in museums across the globe including at the Boston Children's Museum, Science Center Singapore, The Franklin Institiute, and Westchester Children's Museum will be proud to bring one to this region.
Tom Luckey, designer of the Climber, passed away in 2012, making the Westchester Children's Museum Climber the last that he designed. Tom was an incredibly gifted and inspiring human being who was devoted to his craft in spite of his physical challenges (he was paralyzed from the shoulders down). We are honored and excited that Spencer Luckey, President of Luckey Design, is guiding the climber project for the Westchester Children's Museum.
