Art Cart materials sit atop Hiroshi Sugimoto's carved tree table in the Hirshhorn's lobby.

Celebrate color at this week’s Art Cart inspired by artists Olafur Eliasson and Sam Gilliam. Young artists will look closely at works by both artists, play with reflective materials, and create their own works of art with light and color! 

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

Do this at home! Have you ever seen a rainbow? Maybe you’ve noticed one refracted through a glass prism or while playing in a sprinkler on a sunny day. This project will give you the power to make your own rainbow! Create

A triangular homemade kaleidoscope inside a round barreled-viewer examines  a round work on paper featuring curved lines, dots and hearts.


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 Lower Level.
