A new Luke Jerram art installation is coming to Gloucester

Of Earth and Sky, a new community art installation by Museum of the Moon creator Luke Jerram, is coming to 20 sites across Gloucester in September 2020.

Luke Jerram, the artist behind the extraordinarily popular Museum of the Moon which came to Gloucester Cathedral last year, is bringing a new community art installation to the city in September 2020.

Of Earth and Sky will feature words and poetry from the local community as accessible art installations at over 20 locations across Gloucester, including parks and heritage sites.

Supported by the Gloucester Culture Trust, the new art project aims to represent the diversity of the city with schools and community organisations being invited to contribute through online poetry and spoken word workshops taking place in July 2020.

Installations will include words and poetry chalked into the landscape, or physical representations of words. Each location has been chosen to ensure visitors can maintain social distancing while enjoying the installations.


The Dean of Gloucester, the very reverend Stephen Lake, said: ‘Gloucester Cathedral is proud to be a commissioning partner of this exciting new project for the city. Last year’s Museum of the Moon demonstrated the extraordinary power that world class visual art has to inspire people and this promises to be just as impactful.

‘We are committed to supporting Gloucester’s developing cultural programme and look forward to collaborating with Luke Jerram once more.’
