Morningside Lights 2014: Celebrating Bearden’s Black Odyssey

Morningside Lights 2012: The Imagined City


4th Annual Morningside Lights

Saturday, September 19, 2015, 12pm

This event has ended.

A neighborhood favorite returns! Starting September 19, we’ll throw open the doors for a week of free lantern-building workshops, culminating in a magical illuminated parade through Morningside Park. This year, visiting artists Alex and Sophia invite participants to create a fantastical evocation of the city after dark. Fluorescent food trucks, Art Deco building spires, decked-out club-goers: they’re all fair game for inclusion in this year’s procession, created by and for the community.

Starting on September 19, join us for a series of free art-making workshops presented by Columbia University’s Arts Initiative and Miller Theatre. Flex your creative muscles as you paint, craft, and papier-mâché to create magnificent mobile sculptures and large-scale puppets. Workshops are open to all and no experience is needed—just bring your ideas and imagination.

Please note: Morningside Lights workshops are geared toward adults, but children ages 8 and up are welcome if working with an adult.
