Gallery: #RaiseAMoon in the Pearl Street Triangle

On Saturday, March 1, a glowing orb was lifted 50ft in the air, illuminating the Pearl Street Triangle and casting light on artist Heather Gabel’s large-scale projections on the side of the Manhattan Bridge.

Created by Chicago collective Johalla Project and underwritten by Blue Moon Brewing Co, the #RaiseAMoon installation artfully redefined the Lunar New Moon and raised funds to support national nonprofit Americans for the Arts (a $5 donation was made with every #RaiseAMoon tweet).
