The Noguchi Museum welcomes visitors of all ages, identities, and abilities as they form personally meaningful connections with the art, design, and vision of Isamu Noguchi and beyond. Programs in person at the Museum include gallery talks and hands-on workshops. Digital programming draws on the richness of the Museum’s archives and collection.
Archives Deep Dive is a virtual learning program designed to explore projects, themes, and topics related to the art and life of Isamu Noguchi. Using the Noguchi Museum Archives as a source of inspiration, these curator-led talks are offered free online. Lectures last approximately 30 minutes, with time afterwards for questions and comments. Live closed captioning is provided.
On Wednesday mornings throughout the summer, artist Sol Aramendi leads a series of free Spanish language art-making workshops for all ages. Free with advanced registration; drop-in visitors are encouraged to join as space allows. No previous art experience is necessary, and all materials are provided.
Center of Attention is a series of conversations each dedicated to a single work of art by Isamu Noguchi. Learn about Noguchi’s materials and process, and participate in slow looking, reflection, and dialogue.

This monthly virtual art-making workshop examines scenes from Distance Noguchi, fixed-perspective films which feature spaces in The Noguchi Museum where light shifts and nature actively interacts with sculpture. Learn introductory drawing techniques, and then settle into a flow while creating a long sketch. Reflect on your drawings and discuss the integration between art, space, and time.
Drawing from a Distance takes place on Zoom, on the third Monday of each month at 7:30 pm ET.
In partnership with Project Luz, The Noguchi Museum offers a free Spanish-language photography program for adults (16 and older) of all levels. Artist Sol Aramendi, founder of Project Luz, guides students in learning introductory photography techniques and image composition.
