The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden offers a variety of public programs that give visitors from all backgrounds and levels of interest the opportunity to experience, explore, and understand the art and artists of our time. It is our mission to create a learning community that brings art, artists, and audiences together in a lively, creative environment. From gallery tours and lectures to youth programs and late-night performances, the Hirshhorn shares the Smithsonian’s commitment to the diffusion of knowledge and lifelong learning.

Horace Pippin loved to draw and paint as a child. Despite having no formal art training, Pippin’s work is exhibited in many museums including the Hirshhorn. Join us in celebrating his important story through a read-aloud of A Splash of Red: The Life and Art of Horace Pippin by Jen Bryant, a close-look at his work, and a hands-on art activity.
