The Noguchi Museum

The Noguchi Museum Review

In 1985 the Japanese-American sculptor Isamu Noguchi (1904–88) transformed this former photo-engraving plant into a place to display his modernist and earlier works. A peaceful central garden is surrounded by gallery buildings, and there are more than 250 pieces done in stone, metal, clay, and other materials, on display. Temporary exhibits have featured his collaborations with others, such as industrial designer Isamu Kenmochi. The museum is about a mile from subway stops; check the website for complete directions. On Sunday a shuttle bus leaves from the northeast corner of Park Avenue and 70th Street in Manhattan (in front of the Asia Society) hourly, beginning at 12:30 with return trips ending at 5; the round-trip costs $10.
