Upcoming Free Admission Community Days at The Noguchi Museum

The Noguchi Museum in Long Island City, Queens, is hosting a series of free admission Community Days this Spring. Celebrate the rich history and wide-reaching impact of Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) art in New York City and beyond on May 6, and June 17- just in time for AAPI Heritage Month!

From 11 am to 6 pm on Community Days, the Noguchi Museum will open its doors for all to explore the museum’s collection of works by its renowned founder, Isamu Noguchi. Founded in 1985, the genre-defining sculpture artist established the museum and garden as a space for welcoming, inspiring, and teaching other artists. This spring, all are welcome to engage in Noguchi’s enduring legacy in the New York City and AAPI art scene with tours and activities for people of all ages. Plus, adults and teens aged 16 and up are invited to bring their abstract ideas to life by registering for free art-making workshops.
