It’s not hard to see why Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrors exhibit at the Hirshhorn Museum is one of the most photogenic and Instagrammable art installations.
If you look past the difficulty in getting tickets, the lines for every single room, and the needing to take a half day at work to visit the exhibit – the mirrored rooms on display are absolutely breathtaking.
My biggest disappointment of the day was bringing my DSLR camera along in my purse, and then realizing I’d left the battery at home charging. So none of the pictures turned out as clearly as I would have liked. (The second disappointment was realizing my car was towed while I was in the exhibit. But that’s a whole other story.)
My favorite room was the All the Eternal Love I Have for the Pumpkins. I’d love to have these lovely gourds in my house!
Unfortunately, someone had recently smashed a pumpkin, so we had to experience the room with a museum chaperone.
The exhibit ends in The Obliteration Room where you take stickers and place them around the room before you leave.
