Are you wistful that summer is coming to an end and you are left craving moments with nature?

Go see the Noguchi sculptures just installed at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. A collaboration between the Noguchi Museum and BBG, the show features 18 Noguchi sculptures. It is expertly curated by Dakin Hart of the Noguchi Museum.

Dakin’s siting of the sculptures in the garden creates an exquisite interplay between each that highlights qualities of the other that might otherwise go unnoticed.

Indeed, the sculptures appear as if they were always meant to be there.
