If there is one thing you do this spring it has to be visiting Yoyoi Kusma's Infinity Mirrors exhibition at the Hirshorn Museum in Washington D.C. - I promise you don't want to miss out on this one folks! 

This exhibit, beginning today and continues until May 14, will travel across the United States across various cities until 2019 celebrating the work of Yayoi Kusama. For the first time in 65 years of Kusama's artistic career visitors at Hirshhorn have the opportunity to enter into Kusama's world and experience six different infinity mirror rooms. The infinity rooms consist of small spaces with walls covered in mirrors that reflect objects that create an infinite experience.  In addition to the mirrored rooms there other works of art and an interactive Obliteration Room.

On Tuesday I had the wonderful opportunity of previewing the exhibit alongside other influencers. I was blown away by every single detail of the exhibit. I attended the even with my dear friend and talented photographer Katie and we were both giddy with excitement. Each infinity room is a different experience and doesn't compare to any other art exhibit I've been to.

Last but not least is the interactive Obliteration Room which allows visitors to enter an all white room and provided with colorful stickers to leave their mark. This room is an ongoing art installation as it is stark white right now but will fill up with colorful dots left by visitors throughout the course of the exhibit.
