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:

  • TONIGHT at 6 pm in the Glicker-Milstein Theater, CMTS presents its Spring 2020 24 Hour Musical: Annie! Join a crew of very tired, slightly manic theater kids as they perform a Broadway musical that they have been rehearsing since 6 pm yesterday. What could go wrong?
  • On Thursday, head to Lerner at 8 pm for Glass House Rocks 2020: Around the World. It’s a sustainability-themed celebration featuring performances from dance, improv, and a capella student groups.
  • Friday at 6 pm at the Louise McCagg Gallery (on Diana 4), Barnard is hosting the opening reception for In All My Dreams, a “collective, multivalent project situated at the intersections of literature, history, and visual art in the Caribbean.” Join four award-winning contemporary Haitian artists and authors for an exhibit opening and artist talk. Register free.


Off Campus:

  • The inaugural Toni Morrison Festival begins on Tuesday 6:15 pm at the Brooklyn Museum. Celebrate the brilliant work of Pulitzer-winning novelist and essayist Toni Morrison with a variety of talented speakers and performers. See the full lineup here; get $0-$10 tickets here.
  • Sunday at 2:00 pm in the Queens Museum, check out the opening of My Word(s) – These are the tools I trust. This is an installation of flash story poems created by participants in the Free Verse Poetry Workshops held in the NYC Department of Probation waiting rooms.
