Noguchi Foundation

MISSION: To advance the understanding and appreciation of Isamu Noguchi's art and legacy.

VISION: The broad scope of Isamu Noguchi’s artistic interests and his creation of a Museum devoted to encouraging the enjoyment and contemplation of these same interests provides us with the challenge to protect and further the legacy of his vision. Our efforts will continue to reflect this vision and will extend it into the future.

The intimacy of Noguchi’s design of the Museum is a fundamental and exceptional part of the visitor experience. The importance of maintaining the character of The Noguchi Museum, even as we grow in programming capacity and in public recognition, cannot be overemphasized.

The Museum will remain a place for the exploration of individual artistic endeavor and creative collaboration through exposure to Noguchi’s wide-ranging practice. To this end, through an active exhibition and public programming schedule, coupled with ongoing education and research projects, the Museum will continue to underscore the influence and impact of Noguchi, and will position his work in dialogue with contemporary culture.

The Museum will strengthen organizational structure and governance, will build upon the affection, engagement, and knowledge of its constituents, will identify and cultivate increased income sources, will upgrade the Museum's facilities and technology systems, and will sustain the high quality of its programming for current and future generations.

Perfect Earth Project

Founded in 2013 by Edwina von Gal, Perfect Earth Project is a rapidly expanding non-profit organization operating from offices in East Hampton, NY.

We raise consciousness about the dangers of synthetic lawn and garden chemicals to humans, animals, and the environment, and educate homeowners and professionals about natural, PRFCT (toxin-free) techniques that provide beautiful, safe results at no extra cost.

MISSION: Perfect Earth Project promotes toxin-free lawns and landscapes for the health of people, their pets, and the planet.

VISION: We look to a day when it is taken for granted that all land is managed without toxic chemicals and is safe for people, pets and the planet; when every landowner, no matter how small, is aware of their role in a larger process, and the landscape industry fully realizes its capacity as a powerful community of educated land stewards.

MOTTO: Transforming landscapes and minds, yard by yard.
