Looking for something interesting and fun to do tomorrow, Sunday August 2. Take a walk over the Roosevelt Island Bridge to the Noguchi Museum

in Long Island City right across from Costco at Vernon B'lvd and 33rd Street.

According to the Noguchi Museum:
This Sunday, friends and neighbors are invited to visit the Museum for free and participate in a variety of programs.

Open Studio
From 11:00am-2:00pm, families with children between the ages of 2 and 12 are encouraged to join us for Open Studio. This month, kids and caregivers will spend time in the Museum's galleries looking at the different ways Noguchi combined two-dimensional shapes to create three-dimensional forms and then collaboratively create a large sculpture inspired by their experiences.

Public Tour
At 2:00pm, visitors of all ages can learn more about Noguchi's life and see highlights from the collection during this informal and interactive gallery tour.

Center of Attention
During this hour-long program, which will take place at 4:00pm this Sunday, adults explore and discuss a single work of art in the Museum's galleries.
