These nuts ain’t the only ones that need crackin’ ;)

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.

On campus:

  • You’ve heard of Orchesis, now get ready for Love Is An Open DoOrchesis! On Friday night, Orchesis (Columbia’s largest performing arts group) is hosting their semesterly showcase in Roone. This year, there are two times: 8:30 pm and 10:30 pm. Tickets are $6 with your ID ($10 for non-Barnumbians), which you can buy at the TIC or online (there’s a link on their Facebook page).
  • Still hungry for more dance? On Thursday night at 10pm and Saturday afternoon at 1:30pm (both in Roone), check out Columbia University Ballet Ensemble’s production of the Nutcracker. Tickets are $7 at the TIC or online.
  • Looking for something a little more lowkey? Head on over to the Furnald lounge on Saturday afternoon at 2pm for Kingsmen’s annual acapella winter concert. The show is free, but if you choose to make a donation, all the proceeds go to UNICEF (so be a good person and give them a few bucks!). Note: if you don’t have swipe access to Furnald, just message Kingsmen via the Facebook event and they’ll put you on the sign in list.

Off campus:

  • David Hockney is at the MET! Well, not him, but his art. Hockney, born in England in 1937, is famous for his delightful paintings and vivid colors. The new exhibit just opened on November 27, so be one of the first ones to go check it out!
