A Chance Visit: The Isamu Noguchi Museum

January 25, 2015 § Leave a comment

When I woke this morning, I had no plan to drive to Long Island City to visit the Isamu Noguchi Museum. In fact, I did not even know it existed. An online search for a Japanese garden in New York delivered this chance introduction. I’ve always loved Noguchi’s work, and we have one of his coffee tables in our living room. It made sense to go on a whim.

This a very special place, beautifully organized to give space to walk, talk and think within Noguchi’s inspiring forms. And this beautiful building–a converted industrial space–is only a few hundred yards from Rainey Park and the East River, so after you leave you gain further space to roam. The Chrysler Building stands southwest as a kind of architectural counterpoint.

After twenty-five years in this city, there are still discoveries to be made.
