Due to enthusiasm for Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors, memberships are temporarily unavailable online. A limited number are available at the Museum’s membership desk each day. The LIMITED EDITION KUSAMA CIRCLE membership is at capacity and is not available online or onsite.

Thank you to all members, and the public, for their extraordinary support.

There’s no better way to experience all that the Hirshhorn has to offer than as a member of our Annual Circle or Collectors’ Council. When you become a member, not only will you have the opportunity to join us for special events throughout the year, you will also become a part of an energetic community of people who are vested in experiencing art and ideas. You’ll receive insider access to the arts through tours and conversations with Hirshhorn curators, free admission to our popular After Hours or similar programs, and exclusive invitations to other events related to our exhibitions and public programs.  

During Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors (February 23–May 14, 2017), members will have access to the member line so they can bypass the general admission line for quicker access to this very popular exhibition. Children under the age of 18 do not count as your guest, and will be provided a pass for the member line along with parents.

We would be delighted to include you among our members this coming season, and we look forward to welcoming you to the Hirshhorn!
