Welcome to the Earthbound Moon online site. Perhaps our least site specific work to date. In 02016 and 02017 EbM has been very busy, though not updating here, obviously...
We have bought homes, had a baby, experienced marriages and divorces, lost members, and moved across country. That last, well, 3/4 of EbM is now West Coast, with our main office relocated to Eugene, OR.
We also became a 501(c)(3).
We launched ESP, a program to continually engage our permanent sites with new artworks - transitory, social, conceptual, minuscule, and Earth works. Charlie Schneider, Nicole Seisler, and Joseph Cruz are the first commissioned artists for ESP.
We launched RIME, a traveling exhibit exchange program for cultural institutions of all sizes. Our initial participants are the Russian River Historical Society; West Chicago City Museum; Main Street Museum in White River Junction, VT; No Show Museum in Zurich, Switzerland; and Museo dell’Informatica Funzionante in Palozzolo Acreide, Sicily, Italy.
We curated shows, gave lectures, and even had a solo show of our archives: the archive of the past, the archive of the present, the archive of the future, and the archive of failure. Big thanks to TTU Landmark Arts and Ballroom Projects for their faith and support.
Coming up in September 02017, we are installing a collaborative sculpture with Adams Sate University as part of their Mars Habitat funded by the Colorado Space Grant Consortium, funded by NASA!
In 02018, we have new artworks installing on sites in Lebanon, NH and Moffat, CO. The latter by legendary artist William Leavitt!
Earthbound Moon (EbM) is an arts collaborative focused on terraforming Earth through the installation of contemporary artworks in disparate communities and on small parcels of surface area around the world. Each of our endeavors is united under the concept of a non-contiguous sculpture garden: a singular work of intergenerational and eventually interplanetary art whose global reach is made possible by a web of many smaller, community-oriented, site-specific projects. From micro to macro, our garden is a network of gathering places—sites of curiosity, engagement, and wonder operating on local, global, and ultimately intergalactic scales.
