Tickets have gone on sale for one of Yayoi Kusama's famed Infinity Rooms in a new location at the wndr museum—an art and science pop-up in Chicago's West Loop, opening in August.

Pronounced "wonder" museum, the pop-up space has no end date yet, but tickets are sure to go fast for the Instagram-friendly destination that also features a floating playground and edible clouds.

At 89 years old, Japanese artist Kusama has been a huge sensation on Instagram, fetching more than half a million hashtags on Instagram posts. Her touring solo exhibition “Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors,” now at the Cleveland Museum of Art, has drawn massive crowds across the U.S.

Featured for the first time in Chicago is Kusama's stainless steel spheres and mirror installation titled, “Let’s Survive Forever."

The wndr museum is set in a three-story, former office building at 1130 W. Monroe Street, and from August 17, ticketed visitors can go on a 45-minute tour through 20 “experiences." Tickets and info: https://wndrmuseum.com/
