" A magical day!" "Extraordinary installation" "Unforgettable experience" commented travelers on our spring trips to KUSAMA: COSMIC NATURE

The long awaited opening in April to see the work of the contemporary Japanese artist YAYOI KUSAMA has received world-wide acclaim and each day the extraordinary NEW YORK BOTANICAL GARDEN has been booked to capacity!
If you were not able to be a part of one of our groups to see this sensational exhibition in the spring, here is another opportunity before it closes in October.

The exhibit spans KUSAMA’S seven-decade career with new paintings, sketches and massive polka dotted sculptures as part of the splendor you will enjoy. On view are botanical sketches that date back to her childhood in Japan and magical displays inside the Garden's historic buildings and will spread over the 250 - acre landscape of one of the world's most magnificent gardens.

In early August the exhibit's Infinity Mirrored Room — Illusion Inside the Heart, 2020. will be opened to the public with its dazzling expression of mirror-polished stainless steel, glass mirrors, and colored glass.
