Welcome, artists!

We’re taking the next step in our art-for-all mission: TV. The Hirshhorn has partnered with MTV and Smithsonian Channel for an original, six-episode unscripted series, The Exhibit: Finding The Next Great Artist. Stream it again or for the first time on Paramount Plus.

Meet the artists and judges

Campus Transformation

In order to fulfill our mission as the national museum of modern art, we are revitalizing our spaces. Repairs to our roof and envelope have been completed and the revitalization of our Sculpture Garden is underway. Now, we’re evaluating the needs of our building and plaza.
