We liked the pumpkins. You, apparently, liked the pumpkins. The mirrored wonderland of glowing fruit at the Dallas Museum of Art was supposed to expire this month. And yet, due to demand and popularity, Yayoi Kusama: All the Eternal Love I Have for the Pumpkins has been extended through April 29 at the DMA.

The museum’s collection is the only one in North America to house one of the artist’s Infinity Mirror Rooms. Dallas donors Cindy and Howard Rachofsky made the acquisition possible. Comers only get 45 seconds inside, making the pumpkins ripe for repeat visitors—so long as they’re OK with handing over another $16.

All the Eternal Love I Have for the Pumpkins exhibit now runs through April 29 at the Dallas Museum of Art, 1717 N. Harwood St., Dallas. Visit dma.org/kusama for hours and ticket prices.
