Weekday Sketchers at Noguchi Museum, Queens
If you haven't been to the Noguchi Museum, a small gem of a museum in Queens, you are missing a great expereince. Built by Noguchi to house and display his works is a living tribute to his genius. Join us for a day to sketch his monolithic sculptures and small works indoors and out. Weather permitting we can work in the enclosed garden. We will also have an opportunity to view and sketch the soon to close exhibit of his Akari, collapsable paper covered lanterns that comprised a significant body of his work.
