"Repeat to Infinity"

Make Yayoi Kusama-Inspired Art with Washington, DC's Hirshhorn

“The Obliteration Room (2002)”, by Yayoi Kusama

Polka dots are a prevalent theme in Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama’s iconic art. In this activity, Washington D.C.’s Hirshhorn virtually guides you through engaging with Kusama’s work and making your own piece incorporating her aesthetic.

“A polka-dot has the form of the sun, which is a symbol of the energy of the whole world and our living life, and also the form of the moon, which is calm…. Polka dots are a way to infinity.” - Yayoi Kusama

Hirshhorn is home to major works by Kusama, and hosts a special, uplifting message from the artist on its Web site.
