How do you like to build? Do you stack, balance, or otherwise combine materials? Join us at this week’s Art Cart to explore how different sculptures in Put It This Way were built and experiment with how we can create sculptures!

Find the Art Cart on the Third Level to pick up your balancing materials.

Do this at home! Balance your own mobile inspired by artist Alexander Calder! Instructions here.

Three sculptures made of pipe cleaner and folded paper are attached to a square tube base sprinkled with black polka dots.


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.
