Celebrate the Hirshhorn’s 50th anniversary with the return of Art Cart! Join us for a bonus Sunday Art Cart to make art inspired by artist Alexander Calder! 

The suspense is over! Art Cart is back to celebrate the 50th anniversary exhibition opening. Join us to explore Calder’s work and then create your own suspended works of art. 

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

Do this at home! Build and suspend your own sculpture inspired by Eva Hesse. Instructions here.

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.
