About the “Museum of the Moon” 

This July, Gaze at the Moon Upclose* in Providence, RI
*No space travel required!

The “Museum of the Moon”, an enormous art installation by U.K. artist Luke Jerram will land in Providence, RI this July as part of a larger series of events and exhibitions presented by the NASA RI Space Consortium in association with WaterFire Providence. Measuring 23 feet, this replica of the moon will be suspended within the huge industrial hall of the WaterFire Arts Center. The internally lit spherical sculpture is created with detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface that you can explore up close. At an approximate scale of 1:500,000, each centimeter represents 5 kilometers of the moon’s surface.

Over its lifetime, the “Museum of the Moon” installations (there are currently 10 moons on tour!) will travel to 25 countries and be presented in a number of different ways; in cathedrals, on city streets, and hanging above pools. As it travels from place to place, it will gather new musical compositions and an ongoing collection of personal responses, stories, and mythologies, as well as highlighting the latest moon science.

Over the last 10+ years, alongside some incredible co-workers and volunteers, I've worked to build the organization that WaterFire Providence is today. As Director of Creative Services, my team and I work on visual communications, graphic design, the visitor experience, merchandising as well as project management for programming at the WaterFire Arts Center. Being a part of the 'Rhode Island' experience for tens of thousands of people is incredible and I have an intense pride in place for both Downtown Providence and the Valley neighborhood.
