Where Art Thou: Little Lights Edition

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:

  • Get ready for WKCR’s Fall Concert this Thursday at 6 PM, on Butler Lawn! Featuring reggae legend Lady Ann and the International Women in Reggae, plus talented Afro-Dominican Jazz and soul artists, this free outdoor concert will probably be way more chill than Bachannal. Bring some friends, make it a picnic.
  • Columbia’s annual Morningside Lights festival returns this Saturday, September 21 with the theme Island. Head to Morningside Park at 8 PM, or join one of the lantern-making workshops this week, to create a “chain of glowing islands that sets forth through the darkness—a shared vision to remind us that, in the end, none of us is an island.”

Off Campus:

  • Tickets are still available for tomorrow’s matinee performance of Orpheus Alive by the National Ballet of Canada. The tragic myth of Orpheus and Eurydice will be brought to elegant life by some of Canada’s most talented ballet dancers. Tickets $45 on Arts Initiative.
  • For those of us who don’t have $45 to spend on ballet, for half the price, you can check out Curtains Up! Theatrical Design at the Morgan this Saturday at 11 AM. Featuring an exhibit on Maurice Sendak’s designs for opera and ballet, this event will explore how professional theater-makers construct a show, from sets to costumes, music and more.
