A child sits on the lap of an adult caretaker as they read a book called Mathew's Dream together.

Have you ever seen a work of art that covers an entire room (even the floors!)? Get inspired by artist Barbara Kruger and create your own mini-installation in a box. Artists will take a close look at Kruger’s work, Belief+Doubt, and then design their own work using paper, string, and more!

Find the Art Cart on the Lower Level and pick up your installation making materials.


Do this at home! Transform a box into a unique space inspired by Siah Armajani. Instructions here. 

Half of a medium sized cardboard box has been laid lengthwise displaying a scene within.


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 10 am and 1 pm.  

Nursing caregivers are welcome. Stroller parking is available in the Hirshhorn Lobby. If there are access services or accommodations that can make your experience more inclusive (e.g., ASL interpretation, live captioning, etc.), please contact hmsgeducation@si.edu. 1-2 week’s advance notice is recommended but not required.
