Get inspired by the seasonal changes happening all around us and join for a fall-inspired Storytime on the Plaza. Young artists will explore the Plaza’s plant life with a gardener from Smithsonian Gardens, look closely at Figure for Landscape by Barbara Hepworth, and read Plants Can’t Sit Still by Mia Posada. After the read-aloud, we’ll build and sculpt our own nature inspired works!
Meet in the Museum Lobby.
Do this at home! Make your own abstract sculpture inspired by Barbara Hepworth. Instructions here.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a program in advance.
