A group of educators, children and caregivers participate in Storytime together on the Hirshhorn's Plaza.

Join us and the Hirshhorn’s very own sculptor conservator for a special Storytime about sculptures and how we care for them. We will explore Spatial Concept: Nature by Lucio Fontana, learn about conservators, and read Circle by Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen. Following the story, we will create and care for our own works of art.

Meet in the Museum Lobby.

Do this at home! Make your own abstract sculpture inspired by Barbara Hepworth. Instructions here.

A grey, organic sculpture made of clay and resembling a pelvis sits on a flat brown surface, a white background behind it.


Join Hirshhorn Kids on Wednesdays for a one-of-a-kind storytime experience! Each week offers a fun and fresh theme for our youngest artists and their adults. Get a fun and hands-on introduction to a new artwork each week, and participate in a joyful read-aloud filled with music, stories, and movement. Then, stay and play while your little artist creates. No reservations or tickets required. Nursing caregivers are welcome. Stroller parking is available in the Hirshhorn Lobby. An ASL Interpreter may be requested for this program; two weeks advance notice is appreciated. For a group of ten or more, please contact mcgettigant@si.edu to reserve a program in advance.
