Museum of the Moon to land at Durham Cathedral
Tel: +44 0191 386 4266
Durham Cathedral is excited to announce an exciting new contemporary art programme, as part of Durham’s Year of Pilgrimage for 2020. The first installation to be announced is the ever-popular touring artwork, #MuseumofTheMoon, by UK artist Luke Jerram.
Museum of the Moon is a breath-taking seven-metre-wide moon sculpture, which marries together detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface, with moonlight and surround sound composition by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award winning composer Dan Jones. The Moon will be suspended in the air in the unrivalled setting of Durham Cathedral from 12 September until 6 November 2020, giving visitors plenty of opportunity to marvel at the stellar display.
Having previously taken pride of place at the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Australia’s Gold Coast and most recently at Glastonbury Festival 2019, Durham Cathedral is in good company as a host location for the Moon.
