The “Infinity Mirrors” exhibit at the High Museum of Art is over, the numbers are in, and the show was, by most measures, off the chain.
Stalwart art lovers camped out overnight for tickets. Thousands waited in virtual queues during online sales. For some people, trying to get a ticket was more like Infinity Wars than Infinity Mirrors.
But those who scored a chance to walk through this Instagram heaven seemed happier than the average Charlie in a chocolate factory.
(Speaking of chocolate, the organizers of “Candytopia,” which opened Feb. 8 at Lenox Marketplace, seem to have captured some of that same social media energy.)
Here, according to the High’s accounting, are some of the statistics connected to the Kusama show, which ended Feb. 17:
Likes on Instagram: 207,528
Stickers in the “Obliteration” room: 835,000
Video views on social media: 536,012
Marriage proposals: More than six, and one officiated marriage.
Socks sold in the museum’s gift shop: 10,000 pairs
Tickets sold: 136,000
Volunteer hours worked: 1,842
School visits: 6,800
