Why We Chose This
The pumpkin is one of Yayoi Kusama’s most well-known motifs, and the artist employs the gourd as both an allegory and a form of self-portraiture—in paintings, drawing, sculptures and installations. She is drawn to pumpkins as a muse because of their “charming and winsome form, their generous unpretentiousness and solid spiritual base.„ Yayoi Kusama’s work is represented in MoMA’s collection.

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.
