What comes to mind when you think about sculptures? For most people, it’s a hard three dimensional object. Artist Yayoi Kusama pioneered her own unique sewn sculptures-with texture similar to a pillow! Get inspired by Kusama’s innovation, play with texture, and make your own soft sculpture. 

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

Please note, this experience does not include entry into One with Eternity: Yayoi Kusama in the Hirshhorn Collection. Due to the nature of the featured artworks, free timed passes are required to experience One with Eternity. Plan your visit

Do this at home! Sculpt your own pinch pot inspired by artist Yayoi Kusama. Create.

A small, two-leafed plant grows out of a orange pumpkin-shaped pot featuring vertical patterns of 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.
