Way Back When: Yayoi Kusama

I'm pretty ignorant when it comes to fine art, but I am trying to learn more. This week I went to a great curator talk at the Utah Museum of Fine art about Yayoi Kusama. It was an intriguing look at Kusama's works from the 50's to present day. "The Earth" above was painted in 1953, and is an interesting contrast to her later work. If you live in SLC make sure to check out "Decades" at UMFA. It features work of Kusama from every decade. You really need to see her art in person to appreciate it.

Kusama continues to create art at 81.
