A month-long bid by the Art Gallery of Ontario to raise $1.3 million for an Infinity Mirror Room is ending today – well short of the goal.

And so the AGO is accepting donations for several more days, until Tuesday.

The crowdfunding campaign was still more than $700,000 short – when the extension was announced at noon Friday.

The funds will go towards purchasing a $2-million piece by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama and pay for its installation. Kusama’s Instagram-friendly contemporary art drew more than 169,000 visitors to an AGO exhibition last spring.

The AGO foundation has committed $1 million towards the plan.

The gallery is asking the public to provide the rest through online donations – on the AGO website.
