Dorset Moon featuring Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon
If you thought the moon was out of reach, then it’s time to think again. It has travelled all over the world and wowed thousands, now Luke Jerram’s internationally acclaimed Museum of the Moon is making its way to Dorset for the first time as part of DORSET MOON; the exciting new arts event for summer 2019.
At its heart is Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon, an astounding seven metre diameter spherical sculpture on which each centimetre represents five kilometres of the moon surface. This incredible installation is a fusion of large-scale NASA lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound audio created by Ivor Novello Award and BAFTA-winning composer Dan Jones.
After stunning audiences all over the world Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Museum makes its Dorset debut in three stunning locations where, by the light of the mesmerising moonglow, a full programme of lunar-inspired events will create an experience that’s out of this world.
Dorset Moon is produced by the Dorset Festivals Consortium: Inside Out Dorset (produced by Activate), b-side and Bournemouth Arts By the Sea. Commissioned by the Arts Development Company with funding from European Regional Development Fund and Arts Council England.
This stunning illumination will land in Bournemouth Central Gardens from Friday 28 June – Sunday 30 June. FREE.
