Where Art Thou: Valentine’s Day Edition
Written by Riva Weinstein
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.
- At 6 pm on Tuesday, February 13, the Mivos Quartet – called “one of America’s most daring and ferocious new-music ensembles” by The Chicago Reader – will be performing a series of original works at the Miller Theatre. Find out more here.
- At 6 pm on Thursday, February 15, the Miller Theatre will be hosting a screening of Jordan Peele’s Oscar- and Golden Globe-nominated movie, Get Out.
