Where Art Thou: Just Getting Started
Written by Sarah Kinney
New York City is packed with amazing culture and inspiring art, but sometimes it’s difficult to break the Morningside-bubble and experience it all first-hand. “Where Art Thou” is a weekly guide to interesting and notable lectures, events, and performances for the literary/musically/theatrically-inclined on campus.
Since classes just started, there aren’t any student performances happening for a while. But don’t worry, you can still get your (free!) dose of arts anywhere you’d like…
On campus this week:
- Meet at Low Library on Monday, September 11 for a guided historical tour of Columbia’s campus. You’ll learn about the stunning architecture and beautiful sculptures all over campus, and maybe even catch up on a few urban legends. Any and all are welcome!
- Tuesday night at 6 pm is the opening of the Harriman Institute and the Durdy Bayramov Art Foundation’s new exhibit in the International Affairs Building. The exhibit, Through the Eyes of Durdy Bayramov: Turkmen Village Life, 1960–80s, showcases photographs of Bayramov’s life growing up in Turkmenistan.
- Also Tuesday night is the Argus Quartet playing at Miller Theatre. Admission is free to see this world renowned string quartet on campus!
- Frank Lloyd Wright is coming to Wallach Art Gallery! This new exhibit explores the connections between Wright and Harlem. It will be there until mid December, but head on over soon to be one of the first to see this incredible exhibit.
- Starting on September 13, head on over to the Met Breuer to see Delirious, an exhibit exploring American, Latin American, and European artists. Admission is free with your CUID!
- The Museum of the City of New York is opening an exhibit on aqueducts. Yes, you read that right. To Quench the Thirst of New Yorkers features letters and drawings from the time of the Croton Aqueduct’s construction. Admission is free with your CUID.
- Check back in next week to hear about Morningside Lights!
