The large Moon sculpture will be installed in the main hall of the WaterFire Arts Center at 475 Valley Street.
Over its lifetime, the “Museum of the Moon” installations (there are currently 10 moons on tour!) will travel to 25 countries and be presented in a number of different ways; in cathedrals, on city streets, and hanging above pools.
