The general public has one more day — Monday — to get presale tickets for an installation by Japanese contemporary artist Yayoi Kusama.

Yayoi Kusama: Fireflies on the Water gives viewers a 60-second experience of infinite space inside one of the artist’s interactive rooms created with lights, mirrors and water. The exhibition runs through April 26.

Kusama, 90, who lives in a mental institution in Japan, has created more than 20 large-scale installations using infinity mirrors and playing off the idea of virtual reality in her seven-decade career. As a person who endured hallucinations throughout her life, Kusama played off those mental health issues in her work.

Tickets can be purchased online for $5 each from 10 a.m. to 11:59 p.m., Monday, at tickets.toledomuseum.org, or by phone at 419-255-8000, ext. 7448, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

After Monday, any remaining tickets will be released every Monday throughout the show, starting Dec. 16.
