Hands-On at Noguchi: Akari: Sculpting with Light

Sunday, February 12, 2017 - 1:00pm - 5:00pm

Noguchi wrote, “For me, function was only an initial consideration; my main purpose has always been art as it relates to life. I work with the gamut of possibilities. Inherent in Akari are lightness and fragility. They seem to offer a magical unfolding away from the material world.”


Participants in this program will spend time looking at and discussing Noguchi’s Akari light sculptures in the Museum’s galleries, and then explore similar materials and techniques to create their own light sculptures in the studio.


Previous experience is not necessary. Space is limited and advance registration is required. Ages 18 and older. $10 members, $20 non-members.
