Arts & Culture: The Noguchi Museum, located in Long Island, New York, is named after sculptor extraordinaire Isamu Noguchi. His diversified renderings span from 1924 to 1988. Noguchi's first exhibition occurred just three months subsequent to taking his first class in sculpting. He possessed expertise in working with stone, metals, wood, clay, and ceramics. In 1927 he was awarded a John Simon Guggenheim Fellowship, which took him to Paris, where he began his first studio.

Nogchi did models for public projects in the U.S., Tokyo, Italy, and Mexico. Fountains were one of his specialties as evidenced by the Chassis Fountain for the Ford Motor Company pavilion, at the 1939 New York World's Fair, and the nine exuberant fountains constructed at Expo 70 in Osaka, Japan. He also designed furniture and interior designs. In 1951 he created the first paper and bamboo Akari lamps.

The Noguchi Museum is quite large with its 13 galleries, as the complex is a converted factory. There is also the Isamu Noguchi Garden Museum Japan, which is located in Kita-gun, Kagaw. Experiencing the lifework of Isamu Noguchi is very a rewarding and relaxing way to stylishly spend a day. Visit the website for info on exhibitions.
