Two artists, named Catlind R.C. Brown and Wayne Garret, created a captivating sculpture called NEW MOON. It uses about 5,500 burnt lightbulbs to illuminate while suspended in the air, and creates a sensation of standing right in front of the moon. Half of it is lit up and the other half is dark to mimic moon phases. The fun comes from seeing it from different perspectives, because as you walk around it you can see the phase changing. The first version of the sculpture was presented at the Lexington Art League’s Luminosity Art Ball where all the guests were dressed fancy and enjoyed the NEW MOON sculpture over some drinks and music. Afterward, the display made its way to a permanent home at Triangle Park in downtown Lexington Kentucky with an extra, feature. After transporting the huge fragile sculpture across town, they installed a lever for people to turn which would spin the phases of NEW MOON for everyone surrounding the moon to see.
