A Special Message from Yayoi Kusama

The passion that I and those at The New York Botanical Garden have poured into this exhibition is still burning.

Everyone, I hope you will wait.

We aspire for endless love permeated with everyone’s hearts of human love, a wish for peace in the world, our dreams, and wonders of hope—it is our wish that this exhibition can offer these as its greatest gift.

I hope you all can wait.

With all my heart,
Yayoi Kusama
