An educator reads to a group of children and adult caretakers in front of the fountain on the Hirshhorn's plaza.

Join The Washington Ballet for a special engagement at the Hirshhorn Museum for an exploration of how we express who we are. We will look closely at Your Oceanic Feeling by Olafur Eliasson, read Julián Is a Mermaid by Jessica Love, dance with the Ballet, and participate in our own playful art-making.

Meet in the Museum Lobby.

Do this at home! Create a complementary colors suncatcher inspired by Pat Steir: Color Wheel. 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 mcgettigant@si.edu to reserve a program in advance.
