Don’t be dissuaded by the report of the long lines or the cold. We are wild about polka dots here and Yayoi Kusama’s art has been on the Must Do list for a while now. (We understand, the holiday’s sometimes take over but it’s ending the 21st so you’ve got to hurry!) If you haven’t seen it, I Who Arrive in Heaven is surreal, intriguing and fantastical. There are two infinity rooms that boast mirrors and dots, dark and light. Read about it here.
