With alluringly textured sculptures that make the “Do Not Touch” signs exasperating, and serene indoor and outdoor spaces that create those “Are we really in NYC?” moments, the Noguchi Museum should be on your list of places to visit in Long Island City.
For free admission and extra entertainment, stop by on the first Friday or second Sunday of the month to take part in the museum’s public programs.
First Fridays, dubbed Summer Nights in the Garden, feature film screenings, art discussions, and a cash bar in the courtyard from 5:30 to 8:00pm. This Friday, July 6, the two films are about a transformative architecture program and creating an urban farm at PS1.
Second Sundays, called Music in the Garden, offer live music performances from 3:00 to 6:00pm. The next installment on Sunday, July 8, will feature a postclassical string quartet.
