It’s going to be a big year for Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Not only is the garden marking the centennial of its serenely beautiful Japanese Hill-and-Pond Garden, but it’s hosting an exhibition of outdoor sculpture by the Japanese-American artist Isamu Noguchi. The Noguchi works will be set amid the Japanese garden’s rocks, pond and plantings. The late Noguchi’s studio in Queens houses the Isamu Noguchi Museum, which is collaborating on the garden exhibition. The Brooklyn Botanic Garden also hosts an annual cherry blossom celebration, Sakura Matsuri, April 25-26, with a variety of Japanese-themed cultural events.
