Morningside Lights: TRAVERSE

Morningside Lights: TRAVERSE kicks off September 17, inviting community members to create literary lanterns inspired by 100 years of Pulitzer Prize-winning poetry. This year’s edition of Morningside Lights will literally illuminate favorite passages by great poets of the last century. Artists Alex Kahn and Sophia Michahelles, co-directors of Processional Arts Workshop, will lead free, collaborative workshops Saturday, September 17 through Friday, September 23. The workshops are geared toward adults, but kids 10 and up working with an adult are welcome. The procession will be the culmination of the Friends of Morningside Park’s annual Common Ground festival, which takes place early Saturday afternoon and welcomes young children and families to make simple lanterns they can carry in that night’s event.
