A child with frizzy hair wearing a pink tank top featuring floral patterns stands on the plaza, holding a work on paper.

 Join us for another Sam Gilliam inspired Art Cart before the exhibit Sam Gilliam: Full Circle closes. Young artists will look closely at the works on view and create their own circular work of art inspired by Gilliam’s tondos (circular shaped canvases).

Find the Art Cart on the Second Level and pick up your circular materials.

Do this at home! Transform a flat coffee filter into a sculptural work of art. All you need is a coffee filter, some markers, and a spray bottle or cup of water. Instructions here.

A multi-colored tie dyed coffee filter is stapled to a white piece of paper, an artists signature on the bottom right.


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.
