"Isamu Noguchi (1904-1988) was one of the greatest 20th-century sculptors, creating innovative parks, plazas, playgrounds, fountains, gardens, and stage sets as well as sculptures of stone, metal, wood, and clay. His works can be seen in public spaces and major museums worldwide, but the full breadth of his vision is revealed most clearly at the Isamu Noguchi Garden Museum in Long Island City, New York. Written and designed by Noguchi himself, this book offers unparalled insights into the museum's treasures -- and represents the unity and scope of more than 60 years of intense sculptural activity."
Libraries are my passion in life. Before I became mayor, I used to sneak out here during lunch time...and I'd go to a corner and take a book -- any book almost -- and read it for a while, and then feel rejuvenated.
