Bringing long lines wherever it goes, the highly-Instagramable Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors touring exhibit comes to the Cleveland Museum of Art this summer.

Slated to hit the museum from July 7 through September 30, the highly-anticipated exhibit features six mirror rooms, which can handle about three mesmerized people at a time, as well as multiple paintings by the artists.



"Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors is a celebration of the legendary Japanese artist’s 65-year career, covering every aspect of the artist’s oeuvre from her early paintings to her widely admired participatory installations," said the Cleveland Museum of Art in a statement.

Ticket information won't be available until the end of February. In the meantime, you'll just have to look through these images to get a sense of what's to come.
