    The Yayoi Kusama exhibit currently on view at the Whitney Museum of American Art is on our list of things to do in New York at the moment. The traveling exhibition features a broad range of the Japanese artist’s works from the 40′s to recent projects, including early drawings, abstract paintings, collages, cloth sculptures, exhibition posters, photographs, clothing, and environments created with her signature polka dot patterns. It runs now through September 30th. A few highlights, below:
