The Isamu Noguchi Foundation and Garden Museum is devoted to the preservation, documentation, presentation, and interpretation of the work of Isamu Noguchi. The Museum, the first in America established by a living artist of his own work, contains the world’s richest holdings of Noguchi’s art. The Museum encourages and facilitates nationally and internationally organized exhibitions and projects related to Noguchi’s work.
B+C served as Project Managers for the Museum’s exhibition, Civic Action: A Vision for Long Island City, which opened in October 2011 in partnership with the Socrates Sculpture Park. Civic Action honored the legacy and vision of two pioneering artists – Isamu Noguchi and Mark di Suvero – whose commitment to the Long Island City community launched its regional, national, and international profile. B+C coordinated the work of the artist-lead teams, created and managed the project timetable, and worked collaboratively with the Museum leadership, an Advisory Committee, and Project Partners to engaged civic leaders and cultural organizations in the project.
