A group of children and adults play in the Hirshhorn plaza, the fountain behind them.

For kids (and adults!) of all ages

In Spanish, RevelArte means to reveal. Reveal your inner artist in this special celebration and bonus Maker Morning program! The Hirshhorn is partnering with DC Public Library and three local artists (Nicoletta de la Brown, Veronica Melendez, Carlos Carmonamedina) to explore places that are important to us. Materials will be available in both English and Spanish. Meet us on the Hirshhorn’s covered outdoor Plaza. 

Stroller parking is available.

Please note the majority of this event has been moved to the Hirshhorn’s covered outdoor Plaza due to anticipated weather.

Join us again next month! Maker Morning is the Hirshhorn’s free series held on select Saturdays each month that invites kids of all ages to experience contemporary art through interactive hands-on making activities. Each month, we’ll introduce you to new activities and ideas, focused on this year’s theme of Breaking Boundaries. Drop in and explore the Museum through engaging interactives, kids tours, and more. Activities take place throughout the Museum and Sculpture Garden
