Join Luke Jerram for an online conversation about his Museum of the Moon via MS Teams from the comfort of your own home.

Museum of the Moon is a touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram.

Measuring six metres in diameter, the moon features 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface. At an approximate scale of 1:500,000, each centimetre of the internally lit spherical sculpture represents 5km of the moon’s surface. As it travels from place to place, it gathers new musical compositions and an ongoing collection of personal responses, stories and mythologies, as well as highlighting the latest moon science. The installation is a fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound composition created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award winning composer Dan Jones.

For our live online Conversation Cafe, Luke Jerram will be talking about Museum of the Moon, which will be on display at 20-21 Visual Arts Centre from 17 May to 5 June 2021. There will be an opportunity to ask questions at the end of the session. Please provide your own refreshments!

While this is a free event, you need to register in order to be sent the link to join the session on MS Teams.

Please contact with any enquiries.
