Yayoi Kusama: When will I see her work in San Francisco?

or Los Angeles? I didn’t know anything about Yayoi Kusama (d-uh!) till I saw her version of Alice in Wonderland. I am a fan!

Born in 1923, in the Nagano prefecture of Japan, Yayoi Kusama is an avant grade, artist, illustrator, and writer. She was doing “pop-art” way before Andy Warhol. Even at age 91, she definitely has a lot to teach us about looking at the world with the eyes of a child!
