Great news for fans of Infinity.

The Art Gallery of Ontario says it now has the money – to buy a $2 million Infinity Mirror room.

The AGO’s online crowdfunding campaign saw more than 4,700 donors raising $651,183 – about half of the $1.3-million target – the gallery had set for the month-long campaign.

The rest of the money comes from the David Yuile and Mary Elizabeth Hodgson Fund, held in the AGO Foundation – which provided $1 million for the installation – before the fundraising campaign.

Afterward, the same fund covered the balance remaining – which included an extra $300,000 to cover publicity and installation costs.

The AGO is buying a mirrored room by Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama called “Let’s Survive Forever” – which  features mirrored orbs suspended from the ceiling and arranged on the ground.

Kusama’s contemporary art drew more than 169,000 visitors last spring to the AGO.
