Do you like to make noise? Turn a noise into a gift for a family or friend. Find the Art Cart on the Third Level and pick up your materials. Investigate and play with sound. Then, create a work with a “hidden noise” inspired by artists Laurie Anderson.

Do this at home! Play a game inspired by Marcel Duchamp! Make your own noisemaker, with a secret noise inside. Create.

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.
