Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama's 65-year career has been on the rise, notably boosted by the crowd-pleasing exhibit at the Hirshhorn Museum in Washington, D.C. in 2017. Check it out on NPR. And here's a look back on PBS NewsHour.

Although every event is up in the air during the current COVID-19 pandemic, a number of shows are planned throughout 2020 from large-scale sculptures at the New York Botanical Garden to a retrospective starting at Berlin's Gropius Bau museum, and traveling in Europe.

Known for her recurring polka dots and Infinity Mirrored Rooms, Kusama's artwork evokes a boundless transcendence in repetition and seemingly limitless views.

Now, Kusama's Rooms ring as especially poignant, where in confined spaces covered with mirrors and LED lights, a viewer feels immersed in the comfort of an endless cosmos.
