Contemporary Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama is one of the most popular artists in the world, drawing millions to experience her immersive installations. This KUSAMA Garden Pass will give you access to all KUSAMA: Cosmic Nature outdoor installations across 250 acres of the grounds. You'll also be able to visit the Everett Children’s Adventure Garden and outdoor collections.

Exclusively at NYBG, Kusama reveals her lifelong fascination with the natural world, beginning with her childhood spent in the greenhouses and fields of her family’s seed nursery. Her artistic concepts are inspired by her intimate engagement with the colors, patterns, and life cycles of plants and flowers.
