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 artworks Light Gray with Middle C (Variation #2) and Higher Resonance by Jennie C. Jones. We’ll practice collaboratively creating sounds and making our own found sound artworks. 

Meet in the Museum Lobby.

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 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. 

At this time, we cannot accommodate groups of 10 or larger at Storytime. Groups are encouraged to participate in Art Cart  or Maker Morning. Please contact HMSGeducation@si.edu in advance with your group information.
