EVENT OF THE DAY: Noguchi Archaic/ Noguchi Modern

The Noguchi Museum has an exhibition on view of Noguchi’s work from archaic times to modern times.  The only thing Noguchi loved more than the promise of the future was the sense of belonging to the Earth he derived from working with million and billion year old pieces of rock. Noguchi Archaic/ Noguchi Modern explores a stylistic wormhole that seems to link the ancient past and the distant future in his work. Through August 31. Click here for more info or to submit an event of your own
