From now until May, TTC customers will notice something different about two low-floor streetcars and two downtown subway stations. In anticipation of internationally-renowned artist Yayoi Kusama’s upcoming exhibit, Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors at the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO), parts of the system are being taken over by polka dots.

The TTC is surprising and delighting customers and Torontonians with a sneak peek of Kusama’s iconic dots in few-of-a-kind installations designed by the artist especially for the TTC. Customers travelling through Spadina and St Patrick stations or on one of the specially wrapped low-floor streetcars will be treated to the preview and encouraged to share some ‘spots’ with their fellow riders.

The AGO exhibit – the artist’s only Canadian showing - will run from March 3 to May 27, 2018 and will feature the North American debut of numerous new works by the 88-year-old Japanese artist. The TTC is proud to partner with the AGO on this highly anticipated event to bring Torontonians an exclusive, immersive experience.
