A Hirshhorn educator bends down to converse with a child about the Art Cart

Have you ever heard the word suspended? Suspend means to hang something (like a light or a fan from the ceiling). Artist Eva Hesse liked to think outside the box and she came up with the idea to suspend a sculpture. She called the work Vertiginous Detour. At this week’s Art Cart, young artists will be able to see her sculpture and then suspend their own works of art. 

Find the Art Cart on the Third Level to pick up your suspension materials.

Do this at home! Build and suspend your own sculpture inspired by Eva Hesse. Instructions here

A long red netting hangs in a U formation from a beige wall.


Want to make art inspired by your favorite Hirshhorn works on view? The Art Cart offers young artists a hands-on maker experience during their visit to the Hirshhorn. Each week’s Art Cart offers a fresh and fun theme featuring an artwork on view, an artmaking activity to do at the Museum, and kids projects to extend the fun at home! 

The Art Cart is free; no registration required. Drop in any Thursday between 10am-12pm. 

Stroller Parking is available in the Lobby and the Lower Level.
