Between the 13th September to the 11th November 2021, see the nave in a whole new light as Luke Jerram’s “Museum of the Moon” lands at the cathedral.
About The Installation: “Museum Of The Moon” is a simply breathtaking moon sculpture which brings together detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface and surround sound composition by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award winning composer Dan Jones. At an approximate scale of 1:500,000, each centimetre of the internally lit 7m wide spherical installation represents 5km of the moon’s surface. The Moon will be suspended in the air in the unrivalled setting of Durham Cathedral for over 8 weeks giving visitors plenty of opportunity to marvel at the stellar display.
About The Artist: Luke Jerram’s arts practice involves the creation of sculptures, installations and live artworks. Living in the UK, but working internationally, Jerram creates art projects which excite and inspire people around the world.
Planning Your Visit: See “Museum Of The Moon” during the cathedral’s normal opening hours. No admission cost or tickets needed although there is a suggested donation of £5.
Events Programme: Experience “Museum Of The Moon” at night with the evening openings, stretch under the sculpture during Yoga with Liz Adams and move beneath the model throughout a silent disco. To see the full events programme, check out https://www.durhamcathedral.co.uk/whats-on?eventcategory=64
