Yayoi Kusama is one of our all-time favorite artists. We blogged about her amazing obliteration room installation here. If you are in NYC and looking for a fun place to go with children of all ages, check out her newest exhibit, I Who Have Arrived In Heaven, at the David Zwirner gallery.  This awesome exhibit includes two infinity rooms--one filled with fantastical polka-dotted tentacles ("Love is Calling"), and a second, more reflective space, both literally and figuratively, containing thousands of twinkling lights ("Infinity Mirrored Room--The Souls of Millions of Light Years Away.")  The gallery also features twenty-seven of Kusama's bold and joyful new paintings and the video installation Manhattan Suicide Addict.  We can't wait to experience it for ourselves! 

David Zwirner is located at 519, 525, and 533 West 19th St. in Chelsea and is open Tuesday-Saturdays 10am-6pm.  The exhibit runs until December 21, 2013.
