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.
Open Tue to Sun, 31st August – 14th September 10:00 – 22:00 outside of church services and events (please check hullminster.org for details).
