Catch some of Kusama’s creative spirit at this week’s Art Cart by creating your own sun lantern inspired by her artwork My Heart Is Dancing Into the Universe. Young artists will explore polka-dot shaped materials and create their own reflective works.
Find the Art Cart on the Lower Level to pick up your lantern materials.
Please note, this experience does not include entry into One with Eternity: Yayoi Kusama in the Hirshhorn Collection. Due to the nature of the featured artworks, free timed passes are required to experience One with Eternity. Plan your visit.
Do this at home! Can you paint a dot? Now, can you paint a million dots? Create a painting inspired by Yayoi Kusama’s use of seemingly infinite dots.
