‘First authorized artwork on the moon’ are sculptures by Jeff Koons

Recommended Posts




The art world is over the moon with a groundbreaking event: the first ‘authorized’ artwork on the moon, courtesy of renowned artist Jeff Koons. Koons’ sculpture, titled “Moon Phases”, was launched into space with NASA’s historic moon return on February 15. This marks a significant milestone in the intersection of art and space exploration.


“Moon Phases” was sent to the moon aboard a lunar lander named Odysseus. The sculpture, a far cry from Koons’ earlier works, is a testament to the artist’s innovative approach and the expanding boundaries of artistic expression.


The term ‘authorized’ is key here. While there have been previous attempts to send art to the moon, such as the “Moon Museum” - a stamp-sized tile sporting drawings by six leading artists of the time, including Andy Warhol and Robert Rauschenberg, these were not officially sanctioned. Koons’ Moon Phases, on the other hand, has the official nod, making it the first ‘authorized’ artwork on the moon.


This historic event has sparked a flurry of online discussions, with art enthusiasts and space aficionados alike marveling at this unique fusion of art and technology. As we continue to explore the final frontier, it’s fascinating to see how art finds its place in these new realms.
