This is it.
The last chance to buy tickets to see “Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors” begins this morning at 10 a.m.
The High Museum’s blockbuster show has been sold out since it opened in November. More than 120,000 visitors have seen the Japanese artist’s mind-boggling mirror rooms.
The show ends Feb. 17. But tickets to the last seven days of the show have been kept off the market, reserved in case any earlier days had to be canceled due to inclement weather. Today the High releases tickets to that final week.
Tickets must be purchased through the High’s website (www.high.org) and will not be available by phone or in person at the museum. All tickets are issued for specific time slots.
Wait times will be long, and demand for the tickets crashed the museum’s web site earlier Tuesday, before it was up and running again.
A message on the web site at 11:54 a.m. said regular tickets were sold out and only VIP tickets remained.
This is the last city in which the show will appear. After the exhibit closes most of the artwork will return to Japan.
Same-day, walk-up tickets will not be sold from Feb. 11 through Feb. 17. All tickets for those dates must be purchased in advance online.
In the event that any of the last week’s showings are canceled due to bad weather, refunds will be issued to the original ticket purchaser.
Tickets are $29 for visitors ages 6 and older; children ages 5 and younger are $5.
• Maximum six tickets per purchase
• All visitors (including infants) must have a timed ticket
• One adult must accompany every two children (ages 12 and younger.)
• VIP tickets are $175 each and include an exhibition catalogue and special viewing hours.
• VIP hours are scheduled for Feb. 12 through 17 (Tuesday through Sunday) from 6 to 10 p.m.
High Museum is at 1280 Peachtree St., for more information: www.high.org/kusama
