Luke Jerram Museum of the Moon Bristol Cathedral

Luke Jerram Museum of the Moon Bristol Cathedral:

Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon, is to make a return to Bristol this summer, appearing in Bristol Cathedral in August.

The popular installation measures seven meters in diameter with 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the moon’s surface.

The structure is internally lit and features accompanying musical compositions.

It has been displayed in Bristol on many other occasions, both indoors, outdoors and on the evening waters of Bristol Harbour.

Canon Michael Johnson, Acting Dean of Bristol said of the summer event: “We are delighted to welcome the Museum of the Moon to Bristol Cathedral this summer. Bristol is the artist Luke Jerram’s home city and this makes its visit particularly special. We hope that his installation will inspire and challenge all our visitors as they gaze on this representation of a part of God’s creation.”

The Moon will be on display in the crossing of Bristol Cathedral from Friday 07 August to Bank Holiday Monday 31 August 2020, with opportunities to book to evening events as well.

Donations and proceeds from the event will go towards the work of Bristol based charity St Mungo’s, whose work supports homeless people and ending homelessness.
