NYBG’s Highly-Anticipated Yayoi Kusama Exhibit Is Now Open!

The time has finally come for renowned artist Yayoi Kusama to bring her iconic work to the New York Botanical Garden with her new exhibit KUSAMA: Cosmic Nature!

The unique “multisensory presentation” was supposed to be on view last summer, with the New York Botanical Garden being the exhibit’s exclusive venue. Though it was delayed for almost a year because of COVID-19, the magical exhibit is finally open at the Bronx-based garden now through Sunday, October 31, 2021!

And you can purchase tickets to the transformative gardens right here.
