Where Art Thou: Falling For You
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.
- Monday night from 7 to 8:30, stop on by the Diana Center for Here/Say: Framing, Part 1 [Classification]. Here/Say is a conversation series where students can discuss the relationship between art and current events. This is the first discussion of the series.
- Head on over to the Maison Française on Tuesday night for a screening and discussion of Façade: 209 rue Saint Maur. This film, directed by Ruth Zylberman, documents the lives of generations of tenants in the same apartment building.
- Thursday night at 8 pm is the opening night of Bach + Glass at Miller Theatre. A Far Cry, an orchestra from Boston, will be playing the music of composer Philip Glass while accompanied by Simone Dinnerstein.
- The Columbia Arts Initiative is launching a new series of events titled Columbia Nights. These sessions give Columbia students the chance to visit various art exhibits and plays across the city, then sit down with the artist themself after. The first event is M. Butterfly on October 19, but tickets go on sale starting this Friday at 1 pm at the TIC.
- This Wednesday night is Tribeca Art & Culture Night, a community art festival that happens every season. Head on down (after you RSVP) and explore dozens of local artists and designers.
- Rodin is at the Met! This special exhibit will be there throughout the end of the semester, but go visit sometime soon and enjoy the weather in Central Park. Bwog tip: take the 1 down to 86, stop at Milk Bar on Columbus and 87, then walk through Central Park and go to the Met.
