Four children play with scarves on a grey, circular mat, the Hirshhorn's fountain in the background.

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.

Make art at home! Explore how artist Jiha Moon paints water in our Layered Landscapes project. Instructions here.  

A colorful and abstract landscape painted on a light blue background. A large organic form outlined in dark purple dissects the piece diagonally. Sporadic splotches of bright pink feature primarily on the right side of the canvas. An orange, purple and pink horizon occupies the bottom of the piece, with waves of orange emanating from it. Streaks of dark blue rise upward from the middle of the canvas.


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–Noon.
