Pairings: Isamu Noguchi & Diego Rivera in New York


Thursday, March 11, 6-6:30 PM (EST) Pair your favorite drink with a lively and informative 30-minute conversation on two works of art by modern artists Isamu Noguchi and Diego Rivera—that were celebrated and notorious, respectively—at 50 Rockefeller Plaza, New York City in the 1930-40s. Isamu Noguchi was a Japanese American artist working in sculpture, ceramics, furniture design, lighting design, set design, gardens, and architecture over a seven-decade career. Diego Rivera was a Mexican artist with international recognition for his murals that embraced Mexican history, culture, and social ideals in large-scale public works.


What is "Pairings"? Two educators, Angela Garcia and Maya Jeffereis, will guide participants in looking closely at these two works of art and dive deep into conversation. Come open to sharing your responses to the works, learning something you perhaps didn’t know, and meaningfully connecting with others.
