Visitors can experience the majesty of the moon in both Exeter and Lincoln Cathedrals this month as they provide the backdrop for Luke Jerram’s huge art installation, the Museum of the Moon.
The Museum of the Moon at Exeter and Lincoln Cathedral.
Both cathedrals will host this lunar artwork which measures seven metres in diameter and is a scaled representation of the moon’s surface and each installation is accompanied by a soundscape created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award-winning composer, Dan Jones.
The Museum of the Moon art installation opened in Exeter Cathedral on 4 Feb and opened in Lincoln Cathedral on 7 Feb and both are there until 27 February.
Both cathedrals have curated a varied programme of events to complement Luke Jerram’s artwork, from an evening with Helen Sharman, the first Briton in space in Lincoln Cathedral, to a silent disco and other moon-themed events at Exeter Cathedral. There are extensive education programmes to be experienced under the Moon too.
The Very Revd Jonathan Greener, Dean of Exeter said:
“This is a work of art that, combined with the awe-inspiring architecture of the cathedral, will offer a unique experience that can be enjoyed by everyone.”
Tickets to see Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon cost £5 per person, including entry to the cathedral, and are available here.
