Lincoln Center is lighting its iconic plaza and campus for our friends and neighbors to enjoy, offering a space for reflection during this holiday season.

Elements of the installation include illumination of Josie Robertson Plaza, alternating between a warm and cool-colored light display; floating lanterns on the Paul Milstein Reflecting Pool in Hearst Plaza; and lights on trees throughout the campus. The installations become viewable around dusk and through the night, and will be on display through the New Year.

Lincoln Center’s outdoor spaces on campus are open to the public from 9:00 am – 9:00 pm. Visitors are required to maintain social distance, wear a face covering when on campus, and adhere to Lincoln Center’s visitor guidelines, available here.
