On Tuesday, October 5, 2021, The Noguchi Museum will hold its annual Benefit and presentation of the eighth annual Isamu Noguchi Award to artist Shio Kusaka and architect Toshiko Mori.
Hosted by Museum Director Brett Littman, the evening will begin with a cocktail reception in Isamu Noguchi’s former studio building, located across the street from the Museum and never before open for an event. The program will continue with the presentation of the 2021 Isamu Noguchi Award. The event will then move across the street to the Museum, with a special freeform dining experience in the Museum’s open-air sculpture garden and indoor-outdoor gallery—the first dinner to take place among Noguchi’s monumental later works. The evening will also include a silent auction, and guests will have the opportunity to explore the Museum’s galleries and new exhibitions.
The Benefit raises critical funds for the Museum’s exhibitions, educational programs, and research, and for the care for its renowned collection.

The Isamu Noguchi Award
Established in 2014, the Isamu Noguchi Award honors the tenets that Noguchi expressed in his life’s work and acknowledges highly accomplished individuals who reflect similar ideals in their own times. The Award thus celebrates innovation, global awareness, and Eastern and Western cultural exchange.
