Aspen Art Museum Kusama Exhibit Gone Due to Elevator Being Blocked

I had the pleasure of visiting the Aspen Art Museum, They had up until Sunday February 23rd a single Light Room showcasing Yayoi Kusama's infinity lights. Unfortunately when they were planning it out the setup was blocking the elevator and with the city of Aspen unwilling to give in and the Museum unable to find a new place to put the exhibit it unfortantely closed a bit early.

No staff is allowed to talk about the incident and refers you to read about it online so if you're researching this then here is the answer you've been looking for.

I am personally offering a couple of my Kusama pieces on loan to the Aspen Art Museum and have sent them an email offering such to appease those future visitors who would love to see the greatest Japanese Female Artists work when visiting the AAM.

I am still awaiting a response from the curation team.
