Not On Sale








Dr. Christiane Gruber — co-curator of The Moon: A Voyage Through Time — will delve into the many meanings of the moon within faith, science, and the arts. As a symbol of love and sacred power, the moon is central to Islamic cultures. Along with the sun, it is known as one of the “two celestial luminaries,” or al-qamaran in Arabic. In its time-keeping role, it regulates the lunar calendar and determines the months of fasting and pilgrimage. Discover more about our fascination with the moon, and its pivotal role in humanity’s imaginings of that which lies above and beyond.
