The Moon at Ashton Park School


After wowing audiences at the Commonwealth Games in Australia and touring India with the British Council this spring, the Museum of the Moon is now returning to Bristol.

Measuring seven metres in diameter, the moon features 120dpi detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface. At an approximate scale of 1:500,000, each centimetre of the internally lit spherical sculpture represents 5km of the moon's surface.

In 2017 the Moon was presented at the University of Bristol where over 16000 visitors came to see the artwork over just one weekend. This time the artwork will be presented at Ashton Park secondary school, raising money to improve sound and lighting facilities in the main school hall. The funding will be used to improving facilities for performing arts at Ashton Park School in the future.

Museum of the Moon is a touring artwork by UK artist Luke Jerram. Luke is known in the city for the giant waterslide he installed down Park Street and more recently his installation of street pianos he placed across the city for everyone to play. The installation is a fusion of lunar imagery, moonlight and surround sound composition created by BAFTA and Ivor Novello award winning composer Dan Jones.

Saturday 7th & Sunday 8th July
Saturday and Sunday are the days when you get the chance to marvel at the 'Museum of the Moon'. There'll be a series of one hour slots for you to come in and enjoy Luke's Museum of the moon. You will get the chance to listen to the soundtrack specially commissioned to be played alongside the moon.
