Noguchi, who died in 1988, has a deep history in the United States. Noguchi voluntarily entered a Japanese-American internment camp in Arizona during World War II to help “humanize the camps,” according to the New York Times.

“This sculpture not only showcases diversity within our Nation’s finest art but it also highlights the beautiful contributions of Asian American artists to the landscape of our country,” Mrs. Trump said.
