Everything is Sculpture: Isamu Noguchi in New York

July 14, 2015

Join Isamu Noguchi scholar Deborah Goldberg and curator Dakin Hart of The Noguchi Museum (opened by the artist in 1985) to explore the career of this legendary New York-based artist and designer. Focusing on his work in New York City, they will discuss realized and unrealized projects, including his playground designs, his "Sunken Garden" for Chase Manhattan Plaza, and his iconic public sculpture “Red Cube” at 140 Broadway. Noguchi’s furniture and lamps are still in production today and he was an active designer for the stage, working with Martha Graham, George Balanchine, and John Cage.

Tuesday July 14, 6:30 PM
Museum of the City of New York
1220 Fifth Avenue, New York, NY
