The Art Cart is stationed outside of Laurie Anderson's The Weather and featues many objects needed for light experimentation.

Experiment with light! This week’s Art Cart will encourage you to shine your light and make a constellation inspired by All Things Fractured: Lola in the Night Sky by artist Laurie Anderson.

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

Do this at home. Discover the science of light, shadows, and reflections through artful play. Bonus: you’ll only need a few materials to set the stage for extended play. Create.

A light is shone through a large, square plastic container made of variously colored panels. The light hits the plane white wall opposite the container, creating a colorful pattern.


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.
