Rachel Harrison's "Moore to the Point", a fabricated a giant pink arrow, points perfectly at Henry Moore's "Dallas Piece" in front of Dallas City Hall. The installation of Harrison's arrow has encouraged people to do exactly what Moore wanted with his sculpture, interact with it. Harrison's arrow at first seems comic like and in the end it's very effective. Note: no more barricades.

On a side note, my parents took me and my friend to see the new Moore sculpture when it was installed in 1978. Maybe because of that I have always felt compassion for the "Dallas Piece."
