The Isamu Noguchi Garden Musem
The Isamu Noguchi Garden Museum Japan in Kagawa is the fulfillment of Noguchi’s wish. The collection includes 150 sculptures, many of which are still unfinished. We can see his
house and art studio as well.
Isamu Noguchi was a sculptor, designer, architect, and craftsman. Throughout his life he struggled to see, alter, and recreate his natural surroundings. His gardens and fountains were transformations meant to bring out the beauty their locations had always possessed. His large abstract stone sculptures were both majestic and personal. He believed that through sculpture and architecture, one could better understand the struggle with nature. It is that search for understanding which brings together his many and varied works.
In 1985 he also opened The Isamu Noguchi Garden Museum, in Long Island City, New York.
