Noguchi sculpture in front of a Lobdell Painting (image courtesy Cantor Art Center)
I remember visiting the Noguchi museum and garden in NY years ago and being enchanted with his art; this doesn't look like one of his better pieces but I will reserve judgment until I see it in person.

Now, what I want to know is how I can be on the cutting edge of getting this type of information? I love being an arts journalist and, while I know that I have a long ways to go and much to learn, it's frustrating to only find out the important things after the fact. I'm more than happy to be writing about art in a more "official" capacity but it's certainly clear that art bloggers (at least those not on the national level) don't get no respect.
