This small 100% cotton tote bag is printed with the poster design for Yayoi Kusama’s Body Festival, a happening that took place in New York City’s Washington and Tompkins Square parks during the summer of 1967. Performances during this weekend event included Kusama painting her famous polka dots on nude participants.
Made in Japan, the design of this 13 x 10.24” tote includes poetry excerpts by Kusama. This tote is great for carrying small books, artist sketch pads or a tablet. This cream-colored tote is available in blue or red print. Kusama’s work is represented in MoMA’s collection.

Year of Design
International Women's Day
International Women’s Day is celebrated every year on March 8 and dates back to 1909 in New York City when suffragist and labor activist Theresa Serber Malkiel established an Annual Women’s Day. It’s a day of celebrating women’s achievements: social, economic, cultural and political. Here at MoMA Design Store, we celebrate art and design by women visionaries every day.
