Luke Jerram’s The Moon returns to Bristol: A giant installation of the moon, will be on show at Ashton Park School in Bristol this summer.
The Museum of the Moon, measures seven metres in diameter and uses 120dpi of detail from NASA imagery of its surface.
The internally lit sculpture has been recreated at an approximate scale of 1:500,000.
It’s the first time it will be returning to the city after a touring Australia and India.
The exhibition at the school is being held to raise funds towards improving the performing arts facility.
Bristol experiences Jerram’s artwork regularly. He is the brains behind the street piano project in the city and the giant waterslide temporarily installed on Park Street.
“The endless funding cuts imposed to frontline services from central government are impacting all our children,” Luke says.
“It’s great to be able to do what I can to support my local secondary school, to help try and counter the impact of this. I hope the artwork will inspire the children of the school to have an interest in both arts and science.”
The artwork will be at the school from Thursday 05 until Sunday 08 July 2018.
