A group of three adults are gathered around the shiny metal sheet surrounding the museum's fountain the the plaza of the Hirshhorn.

Express yourself and all the ways you are wonderful! Join us for a reading of Aaron Slater Illustrator by Andrea Beaty, and a close-look at the installation Oo Fifi by artist Diana Thater. We’ll practice expressing what makes us unique, learn about Thater’s superpower (her use of color), and create our own works of art that celebrate color and creativity!

Meet in the Museum Lobby.

Do this at home! Discover the science of light, shadows, and reflections through artful play. Bonus: you’ll only need a few materials to set the stage for extended play. Instructions here.

A flashlight is shone through a multicolored container.


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.
