Children Envelop Room with Colorful Stickers

It looks like a rainbow exploded, but this multihued room is the result of an interactive children's installation in Australia. Artist Yayoi Kusama replicated a household environment in which everything is painted white, to mimic a blank canvas. This pristine installation, in the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane, invited children to interact in a free and highly creative way. Kids who visited the site were equipped with multihued dot stickers and had the liberty to place them anywhere they wanted.

The once white surroundings have since been overpowered by a surge of colors. How could a kid not love going to museums after an experience like this? There's still plenty of time for children to leave their mark on the installation. The exhibit will be on display until March 11, 2012 at the Children's Art Centre gallery at the Gallery of Modern Art.
