MOD GEN is a proud presenting sponsor of “UNDER ONE MOON”
A full moon will rise over Catalano Square in the Historic Third Ward on Friday, August 9, 2019 in the shape of a stunning artwork depicting a hyperreal view of the lunar surface. Museum of the Moon which has been touring the world since 2016, is a 23-foot diameter, inflatable art installation by Luke Jerram created using NASA photography. The Moon is the centerpiece of Under One Moon, a pop-up festival created to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing in 1969 and all things lunar.
From moon songs, lunar chalk art, original dance, theater and poetry performances, lectures from leading space experts and more, the Under One Moon festival is a weekend to come and be entertained and inspired by the magic of the universe. “Every culture has its own historical, cultural, scientific and religious relationship to the moon, yet despite these differences, the moon connects us all,” Luke Jerram
