Photographs of the indoor/ outdoor gallery of The Noguchi Museum, ca. mid- 1980s. 

Noguchi’s arrangement of basalt sculptures in the top photo is true to the current installation, while it appears the artist was still trying out different constellations of sculptures in the lower image. For a curator, one of the joys of the photo archive is to see Noguchi playing with the relationships between materials and forms at a moment when these sculptures were his most prized—- i.e. current—- works.
