Weekday Sketchers at Noguchi Museum Wednesday

Noguchi Museum Shop and Cafe - Art Gallery in Astoria

There are so many reason to visit the Noguchi Museum: The wonderful sculptures, the industrial vibe, the peaceful garden, or the ferry ride to get there.  But at this time of year there is even one more reason: the beautiful weeping cherry tree in the center of the garden.  Join its this week for an immersive experience into all things Noguchi.
