Art lovers are camping out for a last chance to see “Infinity.”
About 140,000 advance tickets have been sold to the wildly popular “Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors” exhibit at the High Museum of Art, but there are still a few to be had.
Atlanta is the last city to host this traveling show, which has been on the road for two years. It will be on display at the High through Feb. 17.
After that the show will be disassembled and most of the art work will go back to Japan.
While advance tickets are sold out, a hundred tickets for each day’s showings are sold each morning at the museum box office, available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Kusama fans, members of a demographic that tilts toward Millennials, are lining up the night before, often spreading out lawn chairs and setting up tents in Sifly Piazza, to camp out for tickets.
Some are showing up by midnight, according to High spokesperson Marci Tate Davis. Often the 100-person allotment will be accounted for by 4 a.m., she said.
Each day’s tickets are sold for that day only. All tickets are for timed entries and must be used during the time for which they’re assigned.
Tickets are $29; $5 age 5 and under. One adult must be present for every two children 12 and under. Those who are more than 10 minutes late for their appointed time might not gain entry. High Museum of Art, 1280 Peachtree St. NE, Atlanta. 404-733-4400, high.org.
