A group of three adults are gathered around the shiny metal sheet surrounding the museum's fountain the the plaza of the Hirshhorn.

Join us for an exploration of “I went away and forgot you. A while ago I remembered. I remembered I’d forgotten you. I was dreaming”  by artist Dana Awartani. We’ll think about memories and create our own unique stencils and designs. Then, just like the artist, you may choose to wipe it away! 

Find the Art Cart on the Museum’s Plaza and experiment with making (and unmaking!) art. 

This project received support from the Smithsonian American Women’s History Initiative Pool.


Do this at home! Brighten up the darkness and discover the science of light, shadows, and reflections through artful play. Instructions here.

A flashlight is shone through a multicolored container.


ABOUT THE ART CART 

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 Saturday between 10am and 1pm.
