The Museum of the Moon

About The Museum of the Moon

An extraordinary art installation, named Museum of the Moon, is making its debut in Scotland this summer.

The installation is being brought to Scotland by UZ Arts who are working in partnership with Synergy Concerts, Take Me Somewhere festival, The Charles Rennie Mackintosh Society and Kelburn Castle Estate.

Museum of the Moon is a touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram. Measuring seven 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. The moon has been stunning viewers across the world and now the people of Scotland will get the opportunity to see the highly detailed installation for themselves.

Over its lifetime, the Museum of the Moon will be presented in a number of different ways both indoors and outdoors, so altering the experience and interpretation of the artwork. As it travels from place to place, it will gather new musical compositions and an ongoing collection of personal responses, stories and mythologies, as well as highlighting the latest moon science.

A series of events including specially commissioned music, film, talks and performances from artists inspired by the moon, will take place at Mackintosh Queen’s Cross between 11th May and 24th June 2018, part of the celebrations for Mackintosh 150 – the 150th anniversary of Mackintosh’s birth. The moon will then move on to Kelburn Castle Estate where it will be visible at the annual Kelburn Garden Party from 29th June until 1st July.
