JGarden Description:"The Isamu Noguchi Garden Museum displays a comprehensive collection of artwork by sculptor Isamu Noguchi (1904-1988) in a tranquil setting created by the artist. On exhibition are more than 250 works, including stone, metal, wood and clay sculptures, models for public projects and gardens, dance sets, and Noguchi's Akari light sculptures. Housed in thirteen galleries within a converted factory building, and encircling a garden containing major granite and basalt sculptures, the museum presents one of the most dramatic installations of art in New York City. The Isamu Noguchi Museum is operated by The Isamu Noguchi Foundation, Inc." - from the museum web site.

When the floating bridge
Of the dream of a spring night
Was snapped, I awoke:
In the sky a bank of clouds
Was drawing away from the peak.
