In September 2012, the Arts Initiative and Miller Theatre at Columbia University partnered to inaugurate a new community arts event. Called Morningside Lights, the week-long festival began with open workshops during which participants off all ages came together to build the lanterns that would be paraded through the park on September 29. The illuminated procession capped off the week of activities, combining glowing lanterns and a world-premiere score. Alex Kahn and Sophia Michahelles of Processional Arts Workshop oversaw the visual components of the procession, while composer Nathan Davis wrote the participatory score.
