Looking Up: The Skyviewing Sculptures of Isamu Noguchi

The Japanese American artist Isamu Noguchi (1904–1988) was one of the 20th century’s most acclaimed artists. The exhibition brings more than 40 sculptures and drawings together—comprising 60 years of Noguchi’s long career—to explore the various forms that the theme of skyviewing takes in his art. One of Noguchi’s most ambitious explorations of the theme is the 14-foot high Skyviewing Sculpture that he created in 1969 for Western’s central plaza. It is a key work in Western’s celebrated sculpture collection.

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
