Noguchi Talks | Tour of the Museum with Sculptor Rona Pondick

Saturday, September 13, 2014 - 1:00pm - 2:00pm

Artist Rona Pondick will lead a tour of the Museum, lending her unique perspective to the experience of seeing Noguchi's work. A New York City native and long-time Noguchi Museum visitor, sculptor Rona Pondick is among a select band of contemporary artists with the eye, hands, and imagination to practice what Michelangelo called disegno (total design). She is able, in other words, to make what she envisions.

 

As artists have become increasingly corporate entities—many working by conceptual remote control—the idea of artistic intent has become something of a slippery anachronism. Pondick's attention to detail, from structure to surface, makes her uniquely qualified to give visitors a high resolution look at Noguchi's work.
