8th Annual Morningside Lights: Island
Morningside Lights returns with the theme Island, featuring 50+ community-built lanterns, each one a unique, personal reflection on idyllic solitude or urgent interdependency, rising tides or vanishing landscapes, utopias or dystopias, abundance or scarcity.
Join us on the evening of September 21 after dusk to witness the chain of glowing islands that sets forth through the darkness—a shared vision to remind us that, in the end, none of us is an island.
Morningside Lights is led by the directors of Processional Arts Workshop, Alex Kahn and Sophia Michahelles, and produced by Columbia University’s Arts Initiative and Miller Theatre. This year’s event is part of Columbia University’s Year of Water.
