A child with short, curly brown hair wearing a teal hoodie bends down to smell the green foliage in front of him, his right hand cupped to his nose.

Join us for a garden day inspired by Diana Thater’s Oo Fifi, Five Days in Claude Monetʼs Garden, Part I and Part II at the Art Cart this week. Young artists can look closely at her work, read books about nature, and explore the new flowers in the Hirshhorn’s Sculpture Garden.  

Find the Art Cart at the plaza, pick up a museum iPad and make your own nature videos from a different perspective. 

This project received support from the Smithsonian American Women’s History Initiative Pool.

Do this at home! Experiment with light to change how objects look around you! Bonus: you’ll only need a few materials to set the stage for extended artful play. Instructions here.

A white sculpture sits on a pitch black field, while blue pink and green light dance on it's surface.


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.
