Kusama Krazy!

It feels like all of DC is in a frenzy over the new Yayoi Kusama Infinity Mirrors exhibit at the Hirshhorn and SEEC is no exception! This bright, playful, and imaginative exhibit speaks to our students in so many ways. Many of our classes have been lucky enough to visit the exhibit over the course of the past month and a big thank you goes out to the Hirshhorn staff for welcoming us into this magical space.

We will be featuring specific Kusama lessons in upcoming blogs, but it felt appropriate to pause and enjoy some of the moments of wonder that we have observed in this unique space. SEEC believes in the power of imagination and play, and we feel fortunate to be able to interact with a space where these two ideals are so well represented.
