The Plaza in front of City Hall is a popular place for large organized events: parades, gatherings and protests, marathons and city bike tours, concerts and fairs. And recently, it’s become temporary home to an installation of Rachel Harrison’s Moore to the Point. It’s part of the Nasher’s 10-year anniversary installation of 10 pieces of work all over the city. Harrison studied under Moore, and chose this site to highlight an often overlooked piece of great vertebrae-reminicent art. Her arrow also signifies an entrance to the Moore sculpture that brings visitors into the piece to experience its grand gestures. It’s a much more becoming look for the plaza without the usual metal barricades around the Moore.
