Few not-for-profit cultural or historic sites can be traced through a single thread, from heritage in an unlikely industrial setting in Queens; its conversion to workspace for the creation, staging and deployment of art throughout the world; its rededication by the living artist as a museum space while still a working gallery; and ultimately its preservation as a permanent cultural destination. At the Noguchi Museum, members and visitors can appreciate artist Isamu Noguchi’s full body of work in many media, enjoy the tranquility of galleries and gardens in a profoundly close-by urban setting, and understand the context in which that art was inspired and created over more than half a century. Professor James Hagy, Director of the Rooftops Project, explores the life and legacy of Japanese-American artist Isamu Noguchi with Amy Hau, the Noguchi Museum’s Director of Administration and External Affairs.
