When I saw the pictures of Yayoi Kusama’s artwork in the paper about her upcoming exhibition at the Hirshhorn museum, I recalled one of the first posts I had written on Art Is Everywhere. It happened to be her polka dot artwork in the art exhibit “Happenings.” She loves dots and uses them with mirrors, along with and on pumpkins. The exhibit is supposed to be a sensory explosion. The Hirshhorn anticipates it being a blockbuster show and is giving out free timed passes. The artist is 87 years old and still causing quite a stir with dots — just in time to enjoy for Valentine’s Day during this month of love.
See the Birthday Balloons post on Slipcovers for Your Walls along with below — both appropriate for an upcoming 4th of July celebration.
This is a bit psychedelic but too happy not to post. Artist Yayoi Kusama has an obsession with polka dots. Here’s another look at one of her earlier installations.
I like jazz and rhythm and blues, being from New Orleans, how could I not, so here’s a non-traditional patriotic song in time for the 4th of July, Freedom’90 by George Michael. A bit descriptive of the 80’s (with all the top models of the time) but fun and danceable– perfect for Kick Starting Your Weekend.
