The beloved neighborhood tradition returns for its eighth consecutive year. Starting September 14, Miller opens its doors for a week of free lantern-building workshops, culminating in a magical illuminated procession through Morningside Park. Morningside Lights returns with Island, a luminous archipelago floating on a sea of blue light. Joining with Columbia University's School of the Arts to mark 2019 as the Year of Water, the annual event will feature 50 community-built lanterns, each one a unique, personal reflection on idyllic solitude or urgent interdependency, rising tides or vanishing landscapes, utopias or dystopias, abundance or scarcity. The resulting chain of glowing islands will set forth through the darkness of Morningside Park—a shared vision to remind us that, in the end, none of us is an island.
