THE REIMAGINED MONUMENT AT THE FORUM
Lanterns from Morningside Lights 2022
Presented in partnership with The Forum
On display October 1-31
The magic of Morningside Lights lives on through the month of October. A selection of handmade lanterns created for this year's celebration are displayed at The Forum for all to explore the collective creations of the Morningside Lights community.
This year marked the 11th annual Morningside Lights with the theme The Reimagined Monument, a luminous, moving sculpture garden comprised of 30+ community-built lanterns, each one a unique, personal reflection on how we memorialize, creating newly inspired monuments that speak to the current moment, shared past, and hopes for the future. In a community procession through Morningside Park on September 24, the glowing monuments set forth through the darkness—a shared, collective reimagining of public statuary. Thrillist described Morningside Lights as “A heartwarming and community-based experience" as “a dreamy array of lanterns light up the night sky."
The Forum, located on the corner of 125th Street and Broadway, is a unique community gathering space that serves as the gateway to Columbia University's developing Manhattanville campus. It is open to the entire university as well as the local New York City community.
