Whether you'd define yourself as a space-geek or not, call it wild fascination or complete lunacy, we've all dreamed of flying to outer space and walking on the moon at some point in our lives.
Well, guess what? An epic installation called Museum of the Moon is making that trip to space seem a lot closer than you would think...
Made famous by the gigantic, seven metre-wide moon suspended in mid-air that's at the core of the exhibition, every little detail from craters to surface shadows of our moon will be on show at this jaw-dropping show. It's time to channel your inner astronaut and get amongst the artwork by UK artist, Luke Jerram, with the idea to find a little spot on the floor under the moon and gaze at her girth and beauty.
Museum of the Moon will be coming to West Village in West End from 2-11 September as a part of Brisbane Festival, with no tickets needed to catch it. And it's not the only one of Jerram's impressive artworks that's heading our way—it will be followed up by Gaia, which visualizes Earth from space, from 13-18 September, and Mars, which—you guessed it—shows the surface of Mars in stunning detail. That one will hit West Village from 20-24 September.
Basically, you've got three incredible reasons to head to West End in September. You can check out all the details, and rest of the Brisbane Festival line up, here.
