Socrates x Noguchi Field Guide: Sustainability

Saturday, October 7, 2023
11 am–1 pm
At Socrates Sculpture Park (32-01 Vernon Blvd)
Free with advance registration

Connect with nature through art making in a series of hands-on workshops led by Noguchi Educators at nearby Socrates Sculpture Park. These workshops are open to all ages and any skill level. Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. All participants will be given a free pass to visit The Noguchi Museum after the program. 

On Saturday, October 7, join Noguchi Educator Joe Tokumasu Field for a workshop exploring themes of repurposing, frugality, and playfulness in Isamu Noguchi’s artwork, and participate in an art-making activity using found and recycled materials.

Joseph Tokumasu Field (he/him) holds an MA in curating and arts management from Richmond University in London. He is currently an educator at the Barnes Foundation, Guggenheim, 92nd Street Y, and The Noguchi Museum. He has fifteen years of experience as a museum professional, art history professor, and multi-modal instructor. His teaching practice always centers people over objects and utilizes inquiry-based dialogue. Using the newest scholarship, he strives to rethink long held narratives and highlights marginalized artists.
