About

Moon Arrow is a sculptural arrow which continually points at the moon. Created by artist Heidi Neilson as an Arts and Humanities Resident with the  New York City Urban Field Station, Moon Arrow celebrates nature within our urban environment. Moon Arrow is installed temporarily on shorelines and other public locations around New York City on the schedule below. Visitors welcome!
