Dozens of people carrying colorful illuminated lanterns alongside hundreds of spectators at night in front of Butler Library at Columbia University.

A fleet of awe-inspiring and colorful sculptural lanterns illuminated the Morningside Lights parade from Morningside Park to College Walk, after a week of lantern-building workshops for Columbians and our neighbors. Dozens of makers and thousands of marchers were delighted by the magic of lights celebrating this year's theme, "The Reimagined Monument," a look at how we collectively memorialize. You can see these creative handmade lanterns on display at The Forum through the month of October.
