Seen and Unseen: Noguchi’s Designs for the Stage

Friday, August 12, 2022
12 pm–1:30 pm

Seen and Unseen is a series of virtual tours for adults who are blind or have low vision, leading participants through interactive experiences with Isamu Noguchi’s art. Museum educators engage participants through verbal descriptions and conversation.

Noguchi said that “there is joy in seeing sculpture come to life on the stage in its own world of timeless time.” Join us for an exploration of Noguchi’s costumes and props that were designed in collaboration with Ruth Page, Martha Graham, and George Balanchine.

This free program is offered remotely, accessible by Zoom link or dial-in phone number. Program times listed are ET (Eastern Time). To RSVP, please email or call 718.204.7088 ext 205.
