Moon: Art, Science, Culture

 
  6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Humans have been fascinated with our nearest heavenly body, the Earth’s Moon, since prehistoric times.

In 2019 it will be 50 years since we set foot on the Moon during the Apollo space missions.

Join astronomer Dr Robert Massey and art historian Dr Alexandra Loske for an illustrated talk about how our obsession with the Moon has manifested itself in the sciences and visual arts, from earliest ritualistic drawings and objects, Romantic symbolism and silent movies, to scientific observation, photography, and space race propaganda.

Cost: £8
