About Moonlight on Main

The Museum of the Moon was exhibited in downtown Belmont for three weekends serving as the backdrop for a series of lunar-inspired events. Over the centuries, the moon has been used as a timekeeper, calendar, and source of light to aid nighttime navigation. The evenings and weekends evoked passion and exploration as the ethereal blue light cast by the full moon served as the perfect environment for art exhibitions, theater performances, and a variety of musical concerts. We hope the exhibit was an educational experience of a lifetime and inspired the next generation of scientists, artists, poets, writers, and musicians from Gaston County. During Halloween weekend, the mysterious dark side of the moon invited the most ghoulish of them all into downtown for a “spooktacular” good time.
