Afshan Lakha is a co-founder and principal of Bellevue, Washington-based Lakha Investments Company. Outside of her business endeavors, Afshan Lakha is a patron of the arts and supporter of the Seattle Art Museum (SAM).

The Pacific Northwest’s leading center for visual arts, SAM has displayed world-class art from both local and international artists since 1933. In 1994, SAM added the Seattle Asian Art Museum, followed by the Olympic Sculpture Park in 2005. It continues to feature rotating and permanent exhibitions in Downtown Seattle.

One upcoming exhibition will feature Yayoi Kusama’s Infinity Mirrors, a look at five decades of her use of fully-mirrored rooms in art. Her first mirror room, which will be prominently featured, uses multiple mirrors and piles of painted tubers to create a seemingly endless realm of polka dots. Her more recent work relies more on light, darkness, and sculptural elements, using hanging lights and mirrors to put viewers in a surreal and seemingly endless space.

Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors will run from June 30 through September 10, 2017.
