The Moon Arts Group envisions creative ways of establishing a link between the Earth and Moon, advances the presence of human culture in space, and facilitates never before realized opportunities for art and exploration.
In 2013, Carnegie Mellon University’s Robotics Institute will send a rover to the Moon in competition for the Lunar X Prize.
During this mission, the rover will deploy a suite of artworks on the lunar surface – the Moon Arts Project. Lowry Burgess renowned Space Artist and professor at Carnegie Mellon, has brought together a large group of international artists, scientists and engineers involved with emerging media, new and ancient technologies as well as hybrid processes. Together they have collaboratively generated a dozen visionary Moon Art projects that fall into the categories of lunar interaction, lunar performance, and lunar cargo.
