The neighborhood favorite returns! Starting September 4, Miller Theatre throws open its doors for a week of free lantern-building workshops, culminating in a magical illuminated procession through Morningside Park.
This year Morningside Lights takes flight, joining with The Audubon Society to recognize 2018 as the Year of the Bird. On September 8, a flock of animated and illuminated birds will fill the night sky. Carrying suitcases, these birds evoke the power and the precariousness of migration on a changing planet. Flight honors the resilience and hope of populations on the move—avian and human—and celebrates the vitality and diversity that migrations have always brought to New York.
The public can learn more or sign up to help create lanterns at www.morningside-lights.com.
