Dedicated to Isamu Noguchi’s works, and programming with related modern and contemporary artists. 13 galleries and outdoor sculpture garden. Open Wed–Sun; daily tours at 2 pm. Founded in 1985 by Isamu Noguchi (1904-1988), one of the leading sculptors and designers of the twentieth century, The Noguchi Museum was the first museum in America to be founded, designed, and installed by a living artist to show their own work. Widely viewed as among the artist’s greatest achievements, the Museum features an indoor/outdoor sculpture garden and two floors of exhibition space in a converted factory building. Since its founding, it has served as an international hub for Noguchi research and appreciation. In addition to housing the artist’s archives and the catalogue raisonné of his work, the Museum exhibits a comprehensive selection of sculpture, models for public projects and gardens, dance sets, and his Akari lanterns. Provocative, frequently-changing installations drawn from the permanent collection, together with diverse special exhibitions, offer a rich, contextualized view of Noguchi’s art and illuminate his enduring influence as a category-defying, multicultural, cross-disciplinary innovator.
