A group of children and adults play in the Hirshhorn plaza, the fountain behind them.

Make some noise for a special Art Cart exploring sound art. Build noise-makers, and use your voice to create a collaborative sound sculpture as we prepare for the annual Sound Scene Festival, a 2-day event in partnership with DC Listening Lounge.

Find the Art Cart in the Museum Plaza to pick up your construction materials.

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


Do this at home! Explore the possibilities of sound! Make your own noisemaker, with a secret noise inside, and play a game of guessing with friends. Instructions here.  

A makeshift noisemaker created from a toilet paper roll lies on a white surface.


ABOUT THE ART CART

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.
