When Noguchi created Sunken Garden, Chase Manhattan Bank Plaza (1961–64) in New York City, he took inspiration from traditional Japanese garden design. Join a Noguchi Museum Educator in an interactive virtual learning program to discuss Noguchi’s process in creating this public work.

Archives Deep Dive is an interactive virtual learning program for adults, designed to explore projects, themes, and topics related to the art and life of Isamu Noguchi. Use The Noguchi Museum Archives as a source of inspiration to create connections through shared stories and group discussion.
