Morningside Lights and Common Ground Festival

Since 2002, Morningside Heights and West Harlem neighbors create collaborative works culminating in a fantastic outdoor procession of lights and lanterns through Morningside Park.  It is a celebration of art and community. Themes have included nature, the City, poets, and arts.
