Polka Dots in the Garden

I had the distinct pleasure of going to the New York Botanical Garden over the holiday weekend to experience the artistry of Yayoi Kusama’s work. There were several displays throughout the garden—from trees wrapped in polka dot paper to a yellow and black pumpkin exhibit that gave the optical illusion of going on forever. Kusama lived for a time in New York City during the 1950s and 1960s and was part of the New York avant-garde scene, especially the pop-art movement. She moved back to Japan in 1973 and has continued to generate a prolific amount of art, as well as writing novels, and poetry.

If you have a chance this summer, check out Yayoi Kusama’s art installation at the New York Botanical Garden running through October 31, 2021.
