The Noguchi Museum offers extended evening hours on the first Friday of each month. First Friday programming includes Center of Attention, an extended conversation around a single work of art at 6:00pm, followed by a curated film at 7:00pm. First Fridays also feature pay-what-you-wish admission and a cash bar with wine and beer. This fall, the First Friday film series has been selected in conjunction with the exhibition Isamu Noguchi and Qi Baishi: Beijing 1930. This October and December, The Noguchi Museum will feature selections from the twelve part documentary Routes: The Spiritual Odyssey of Chinese American Arists. This film features interviews with native Chinese artists who came to America to pursue their passion for arts. Routes was locally produced by a Chinese American and takes the audience through each artists working process. This October, The Noguchi Museum will feature episodes with the New York based artists Zhang Hongtu and Cui Fei.
