To celebrate architect Philip Johnson's 110th birthday and the 10th anniversary of his Glass House opening to the public, Yayoi Kusama's Narcissus Garden will be on display for the season.

Philip Johnson was a fan and collector of Kusama's work, and the New Canaan, Connecticut property will host and offer tours of the sculpture for the entirety of the 2016 season.

Originally created 50 years ago for the 33rd Venice Biennale, Narcissus Garden is comprised of 1,300 steel orbs that will be floating in the pond, creating a kinetic sculpture.

Other works on display will include Pumpkin (2015) and a custom installation, Dots Obsession, that will cover the walls of the Glass House with polka dots, creating an "infinity room."

Narcissus Garden and Pumpkin are on view from May 1 through November 30, 2016. Dots Obsession will take place from September 1 through 26.
