Marvel at the moon, in this new touring artwork

A fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound, come marvel at the Museum of the Moon, a new touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram.

Measuring seven metres in diameter and featuring detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface, each centimetre of the internally lit spherical sculpture represents 5km of the moon’s surface.

Created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award winning composer Dan Jones, The Museum of the Moon will collect new musical compositions and a collection of personal responses, stories and mythologies.

To celebrate the installation, Freedom Festival will present an accompanying programme of lunar inspired events, talks and happenings beneath the moon.

Museum of the Moon by artist Luke Jerram, co-commissioned by a number of creative organisations brought together by Luke Jerram and Norfolk & Norwich Festival. These include: At-Bristol, Kimmel Center, Lakes Alive, Provincial Domain Dommelhof, Brighton Festival, Greenwich+Docklands International Festival, Without Walls, Les Tombées de la Nuit, Rennes and Cork Midsummer Festival. The artwork has also been created in partnership with the UK Space Agency, University of Bristol and The Association for Science and Discovery Centres.

Supported by the Without Walls Associate Touring Network, British Science Association and the InSitu network.
