Noguchi Talks | Tour of the Museum with Architect Claire Weisz
Saturday, October 18, 2014 - 1:00pm - 2:00pm

Claire Weisz’ firm, WXY Architecture, is currently helping The Noguchi Museum conceive and plan a hurricane-resistant archive and storage building. WXY’s recent renovation of The Drawing Center in Soho is that rarest of museum building projects: a right-sized makeover that is understated, restrained, and transformational. It should be required study for any board of trustees thinking about reworking their facilities.

Noguchi Talks | Tour of the Museum with Sculptor Rona Pondick
Saturday, September 13, 2014 - 1:00pm - 2:00pm

Artist Rona Pondick will lead a tour of the Museum, lending her unique perspective to the experience of seeing Noguchi's work. A New York City native and long-time Noguchi Museum visitor, sculptor Rona Pondick is among a select band of contemporary artists with the eye, hands, and imagination to practice what Michelangelo called disegno (total design). She is able, in other words, to make what she envisions.

 

As artists have become increasingly corporate entities—many working by conceptual remote control—the idea of artistic intent has become something of a slippery anachronism. Pondick's attention to detail, from structure to surface, makes her uniquely qualified to give visitors a high resolution look at Noguchi's work.
