Beginning in May 2015, the thirtieth anniversary of its opening, The Noguchi Museum celebrates three decades as one of New York’s most beloved cultural institutions, with a diversity of programming that illuminates the arc of Isamu Noguchi’s career and his ongoing impact on art and design. Over the summer, this programming will include the Museum’s annual series of Community Days, monthly day-long events during which friends and neighbors are invited to visit for free and participate in a variety of special activities.
On June 7, July 5, and August 2, families with children between the ages of 2 and 12 can participate in Open Studio, a drop-in program that includes activities in the galleries and hands-on art making workshops, anytime between 11am and 2pm. An informal public tour for visitors interested in exploring highlights of the Museum’s collection will take place in the afternoon at 2pm. At 4pm, adults seeking a more in-depth look at Noguchi’s work may participate in the Museum’s Center of Attention program. Center of Attention conversations are one hour in length and focus on a single work of art. The final Community Day of the season will be on Sunday, September 13.
