Morningside Lights is a free weeklong arts event led by the directors of Processional Arts Workshop, Alex Kahn and Sophia Michahelles and produced by Columbia University's Arts Initiative and Miller Theatre. Help create a fleet of lanterns and instruments during a week of workshops that will culminate in an illuminated procession of public art in Morningside Park. 

Morningside Lights: TRAVERSE

For 100 years, the Pulitzer Prizes have celebrated the great writers and artists of our time. This fall, makers and marchers participating in our community-created lantern procession will have a chance to literally illuminate favorite passages by great poets who have received this unique honor over the past century.
