What can you create with sound? Join us for a reading of Sounds Around Town by Wendy Pfeffer, and a close-look and listen to the artwork Light Gray with Middle C (Variation #2) by Jennie C. Jones. We’ll practice collaboratively creating sounds and making our own found sound artworks. 

Meet in the Museum Lobby on Level One.

Do this at home! Explore sound experiments by artist Laurie Anderson, and then create your own sounds with different materials. Can you make cereal move without touching it? Can you make your voice travel? Can you feel a vibration? 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 hmsgeducation@si.edu . 1-2 weeks advance notice is recommended but not required.
