Yayoi Kusama established her groundbreaking artistic vision almost seven decades ago, yet, at age 90, she’s the most Instagrammable artist at work today. Join other art-lovers, who relish in the opportunity to post pictures of their experiences with her work, when Yayoi Kusama’s site-specific installation Fireflies on the Water debuts at the Toledo Museum of Art on December 14. The work, which occupies a full gallery room, uses light and mirrors to transport viewers to a space that seems endlessly expansive. Admission requires a $5 ticket, reservable online, which assigns a specific date and time to spend 60 seconds alone in the room with the installation.

On view through April 26, 2020
