Morningside Lights returns, inspired by Langston Hughes’ 1926 poem Harlem Night Song. Join us virtually, and be a part of a digitally-linked collection of home-built lanterns.
Since Morningside Lights first set off through the park nine years ago, our core mission has been to bring people together in a shared act of artistic expression. And while this year is different in application, the common bond remains the same.
Together, while apart, we will digitally assemble text, images, and voices in sequence to create a shared piece of art, allowing the lanterns to illuminate Hughes’ poem and embody its spirit of togetherness in dark times.
Morningside Lights is led by the directors of Processional Arts Workshop, Alex Kahn and Sophia Michahelles, and produced by Columbia University’s Arts Initiative and Miller Theatre.
