A gathering of guests in The Noguchi Museum garden in midsummer

Noguchi Council

The Noguchi Council is the Museum’s patron program for friends who are passionate about the work and artistic legacy of Isamu Noguchi. Members receive many exclusive benefits, such as the opportunity to meet artists, collectors, and curators, as well as national and international travel programs. Each successive level of support offers greater engagement with the Museum.
