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 during a week of workshops that will culminate in an illuminated procession of public art in Morningside Park. 

Morningside Lights: Flight

On September 8, a flock of animated and illuminated birds will fill the night sky. Carrying suitcases, these birds evoke the power and precariousness of migration on a changing planet. Flight honors the resilience and hope of populations on the move—avian and human—and celebrates the vitality and diversity that migrations have always brought to New York.
