Renowned artist Luke Jerram receives honorary degree

International Edu News

Luke Jerram, the internationally renowned artist famous for his contemporary live arts projects, has been awarded an honorary degree by the University of Bristol. Luke specialises in large scale public artworks, which have been experienced by millions of people worldwide, including his famous 'Museum of the Moon' installation which saw him partner with NASA and BAFTA and Ivor Novello award-winning composer Dan Jones and his ‘Park and Slide’ project, in which he turned Bristol's iconic Park Street into a giant water slide for one day.

Luke's honorary degree follows on from his 2018 collaboration with the University's Bristol Vision Institute, which resulted in the 'Impossible Garden' exhibition at the University Botanic Garden; and 'Gaia', which was created in partnership with the Natural Environment Research Council, and hosted by the University's Cabot Institute in 2019. Gaia was one of 117 exhibitions in 22 separate countries which he oversaw last year.
