Kusama!
February 24th, 2017
The Kusama exhibit at  the Hirshhown has the crowds crazy.  When the museum opened up ticketing for it, the Hirshhorn site crashed.  And while I luckily got a ticket through the site, it took a long time to find a free slot.  So get ready each Monday to try your luck on their site at noon, when new free tickets go up for the following week (or join at a special reduced membership price and go whenever you want).

Even with the timed ticket that I had for this afternoon, the wait was about 45 minutes to get in, and then about 15 minutes to see one of the infinity rooms - given there are 6 infinity rooms, leave yourself plenty of time, or try for morning slots where the crowds might not have built up as much.  And be prepared to enjoy each room quickly - you only get 25 seconds in each one.  But it is so very very worth it.

The final room doesn't have a time limit. It started as pure white, and then viewers are given six dot stickers to add, so the white is disappearing fast.
I'm a D.C. native, but have only been taking photos for about five years. Even in that time, I've seen so many changes in D.C., and am increasingly interested in photographing the things in D.C. that are temporary or may be demolished, and the people who interact with the city. When I'm not out photographing, I'm a web developer.
