Exhibition - The Moon: Eternal Pearl

Friday, Apr 26, 2019 at 10:00am

Concord Center for Visual Art
37 Lexington Rd
Concord, MA 01742

Dante said it best when he called the moon our “eternal pearl,” changing, glowing, layered and forever. The moon is science; the moon is art; the moon tangoes with the earth and the sun. The moon plays a major role in astronomy, romance, literature, poetry, navigation, tides, the uncanny, storytelling, politics and art making. Harold used his purple crayon to draw the moon and locate his bedroom window. Thoreau liked it for night walks during the 19th century and Neil Armstrong walked on its surface 50 years ago. It continues to captivate us throughout our lives as it morphs in size and shape prompting mystery, myth and metaphor over the centuries. This exhibition marks the 50th anniversary of Armstrong’s scientific and poetic moment. We have assembled a diverse group of artists with conceptual and visual results, asking each the question, “what is it about the moon?”
