To get the full experience, head over to the Noguchi Museum in Long Island City, the first museum opened by a living artist of his own work. Noguchi purchased a site across from his studio and converted the former photogravure plant into his museum. Currently on display is the exhibit “Self-Interned” which documents the impact of Noguchi’s self-internment in the Poston internment camp during World War II. Don’t miss the sculpture garden, especially when the weather is warm.
