Monument to Ben Franklin

Monument to Ben Franklin

Model, Metal
This chrome-plated rod version of the Monument to Ben Franklin was made for the Marie Harriman exhibition in 1935. The sculpture finally realized in 1984 was very similar to what it was when it had been originally conceived.

The Noguchi Museum gives thanks to the many talented photographers who have documented Isamu Noguchi’s works, particularly Kevin Noble, who has photographed the Museum’s collection for decades, and Shigeo Anzai and Michio Noguchi, whose portraits of the original Museum installations continue to provide inspiration and insight.
