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.
Yayoi Kusama’s NYBG takeover features a variety of installations throughout the Garden’s 250-acre landmark landscape, with breathtaking floral and vegetal sculptures.
While some of her most well-known creations will be on display, there are also gorgeous site-specific sculptures debuting such as Dancing Pumpkin and I Want to Fly to the Universe.
You can also expect other iconic works like Pumpkins Screaming About Love Beyond Infinity (2017), and plenty of opportunities to learn about one of the most critically acclaimed artists of our time.
