The focus of today's blog post is polka dots. Yayoi Kusama's polka dot obsession makes for colorful and delightful art. Two galleries focused on her polka dot installations the "Dot Obsession- Love Transformed Into Dots" and "The Obliteration Room".
As you entered the Obliteration Room each person was given a sheet of colorful polka dot stickers to put wherever they wanted. The only rules were: do not make chains with your stickers, do not stand on the furniture to get stickers up high, and be sure to return you empty sticker sheet when leaving the exhibit.
It was fun to think of all the people who had been through the room before us and how they chose to stick their stickers where they did. It was like a giant Wonder Bread wrapper enveloping the room!
I am honored that the Seattle Art Museum allowed me to cover the Kusama exhibit for my blog. I am dividing my coverage up into several different blog posts. Be sure to check back in for more of my coverage of the Yayoi Kusama exhibit.
