The Broad Museum is hosting a Livestream of one it’s most popular exhibits.
Usually, snagging a reservation to Yayoi Kusama’s installation The Souls of Millions of Light Years involves a lot of waiting around. Well, what if we told you that you can bask in all the popular attraction’s glory without having to stand in a long line or idly wait by your computer?
The Broad is hosting a Livestream of the mirrored infinity room via Instagram and Facebook on Monday, March 16 at 12 p.m. For the first time ever, guests can explore the exhibit for longer than the allotted 45 seconds that’s offered when checking out the Kusama’s installation in person. Viewers will also be able to chat with fellow art lovers during the stream!
The live stream follows the museum’s #TheBroadFromHome initiative since the institution will remain closed through the end of the month.

Kusama’s out-of-this-world room is covered with mirrors and dozens of LED lights that hang from the ceiling; as the multitude of lights reflect against mirrors, they accumulate and expand exponentially giving viewers a sense of what infinity would look like. Though a virtual tour of the space may not capture the same essence of walking through the piece of art itself, it’s sure to create a one-of-a-kind experience!
