Socrates x Noguchi Field Guide: Exploring a “New Nature”

Saturday, June 25, 2022
11 am–1 pm

“The nature of trees and grass is one thing. But there are many degrees of nature. Interstellar spaces are also nature. There is human nature. In the city, you have to have a new nature. Maybe you have to create that nature.” Isamu Noguchi 

Many of Isamu Noguchi’s gardens are “total sculptural concepts” designed for urban settings. Join artist Sol Aramendi for a model making workshop at nearby Socrates Sculpture Park. Take inspiration from Noguchi’s gardens and concepts from Japanese gardens to envision your own urban garden. All ages welcome. Participants will be given a free pass to visit The Noguchi Museum after the workshop. Registration will open Saturday, June 4.
