The Director and curators of the Isamu Noguchi Foundation and Garden Museum are doing an excellent job in spreading the legacy of the Japanese American sculptor with a presence in various exhibitions and recent art fairs. Now, they bring Noguchi’s work to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, work which will be installed in its famed Japanese Hilland-Pond Garden, the masterpiece created in 1915 by landscape designer Takeo Shiota, and the earliest Japanese garden in any American public garden. Starting September 9th, you will be able to see 15 sculptures by Noguchi at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden’s outdoor and indoor public gardens. As a connoisseur of Japanese gardens, Noguchi’s work would be a perfect match for this upcoming installation. Highly recommended. Photography @Liz Ligon.

To mark a centenary to the start of the First World War, ceramic artist Paul Cumminsand and set designer Tom Piper created an installation entitled "Blood Swept Lands and Seas of Red," after a poem by an unknown soldier.
