Ever have to promise the moon and stars to your children in the mornings just to make them get dressed and out of the door vaguely on time? Well now you can follow through on your pledges by simply visiting The Collection in Lincoln.
The city centre museum is currently hosting UK artist Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon. In the 50th anniversary year of the first man to walk on the moon, the display of the six-metre diameter moon featuring 120 dpi detailed NASA imagery of the lunar surface will be accompanied by a programme of events including late night multi-arts experiences and afternoon film screenings.
At an approximate scale of 1:600,000, each centimetre of the internally lit spherical sculpture represents 6km of the moon’s surface and it’s on display until April 28th.
