A child sits on the lap of an adult caretaker as they read a book called Mathew's Dream together.

Have you ever seen a work of art that covers an entire room (even the floors!)? Get inspired by artist Barbara Kruger at this week’s Art Cart! Young artists will take a close look at Kruger’s work, Belief+Doubt, and then make their own collages using paper, string, and more!

Find the Art Cart on the Lower Level and pick up your collage materials.


Do this at home! Artist Tony Lewis loved Calvin and Hobbes when he was a boy. Inspired by a love of the “funny pages,” his artwork repurposes old comics into poems. Instructions here.

Four comic strips from the funny pages are laid out on a beige background.


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-12pm. 

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