Art communicates. Explore the power of words and images at this week’s Storytime. We’ll look closely at Belief + Doubt by artist Barbara Kruger, read aloud Martin’s Big Words by Doreen Rappaport, and we’ll practice using our own big words (and images and symbols!) to explore fairness, love, and our own power in making the world a better place.
Meet in the Museum Lobby on Level One.
Do this at home! What do you want to change? Assemble a collage inspired by Loïs Mailou Jones’s Challenge—America. Choose a cause that you care about, and then arrange and rearrange images to create a collage that inspires change in your community! Instructions here.
Join Hirshhorn Kids on Wednesdays for a one-of-a-kind Storytime experience!
Each week offers a fun and fresh theme for kids (from birth to age 8) and their caregivers. We encourage all to get hands-on with our art maker projects inspired by the Hirshhorn’s collection, plus enjoy read-alouds filled with music, tales, and tons of movement.
Storytime is always free, no reservations or tickets required.
Museum doors will open at 10am, where our Hirshhorn Kids staff will happily greet you in the Lobby and share the day’s program. Feel free to play in the Lobby while others get settled—the Storytime group will leave for the galleries at 10:15am.
Nursing caregivers are welcome. Stroller parking is available in the Hirshhorn Lobby and on the Lower Level. If there are access services or accommodations that can make your experience more inclusive (e.g., ASL interpretation), please contact email@example.com . 1-2 weeks advance notice is recommended but not required.
