Morningside Lights returns for its 10th year, and invites you to come out and PLAY! Join the Event virtually, and be a part of a digitally-linked collection of home-built lanterns, connecting works of Shakespeare to our present-day experience.
This neighborhood tradition continues with FREE kits to make lanterns at home, including video tutorials and virtual workshops. This year’s theme is Play On! Inspired by the intersection of Duke Ellington and Shakespeare we explore how the act of play helps us find personal meaning and resilience within collective traditions.
Since Morningside Lights first set off through the park ten years ago, their core mission has been to bring people together in a shared act of artistic expression. They invite you to help collectively illuminate the night with your one-of-a-kind handmade lanterns, bringing light and life back to public space.
Morningside Lights will take place on October 26, 2021 at 7pm. RSVP for the Video Celebration.
