“Museum of the Moon,” an enormous art installation by English artist Luke Jerram, is a highly-detailed 23’ diameter Moon coming to Providence this July as part of a larger series of events and exhibitions presented by the NASA RI Space Consortium in association with WaterFire Providence. 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. 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.
