Morningside Lights: PLAY ON!

Morningside Lights: PLAY ON!


Saturday, September 11, 2021, 10am

Miller Theatre at Columbia University

This event has ended.

Morningside Lights returns for its 10th year, and invites the public to come out and PLAY by taking part in the virtual procession of awe-inspiring handmade lanterns. Columbia’s campus-wide exploration of Duke Ellington’s Shakespearean suite “Such Sweet Thunder” provides the creative backdrop for the community to explore how one links established literary and cultural canon to personal experience.

Join us virtually, and be part of a digitally-linked collection of home-built lanterns. Lantern pick-up takes place outside of Miller Theatre on September 9, 10, and 11. 

Availability of kits is limited; registration is first-come, first-served.
