Morningside Lights Procession

Saturday, September 29, 2012, 8pm

Miller Theatre at Columbia University

This event has ended.

Enormous and luminous sculptures will parade through Morningside Heights in this one-of-a-kind event, co-presented by the Arts Initiative and Miller Theatre at Columbia University. Combining small lanterns, large-scale creations, and a live musical soundtrack, the procession will include community participants of all ages. Inspired by the theme, “The Imagined City,” the parade will take the form of a fantastical moving skyline, showcasing a wide range of ideas about what makes up the ideal city, expressed in illuminated, mobile sculptures.


Come watch the procession from the sidelines, or visit www.morningside-lights.com for more information on how to join in as a participant or musician.

Join us! From September 22 to 28, you're invited to participate in a series of free creative workshops to help imagine and create the lanterns for the Morningside Lights procession. Click here for more information.
