Hands-On at Noguchi: Block-print Stamping

Sunday, June 16, 2019 - 1:00pm - 5:00pm

The artist and critic Saburo Hasegawa experimented with many materials, including everyday objects that he used as stamps inspired by European and Japanese techniques of frottage and takuhon. Spend time in the exhibition Changing and Unchanging Things: Noguchi and Hasegawa in Postwar Japan and discuss the abstract forms and lines created in Hasegawa’s work. Then, join artist Marie Lorenz in the studio and create your own stamped compositions using rice paste and ink.


Previous experience is not necessary. Space is limited and advance registration is required. Ages 18 and older. $20 members, $30 non-members. Program fee includes admission to the Museum and materials. Contact [email protected] with any questions about the program.
