An educator stands in the Hirshhorn's plaza holding up the children's book Call Me Tree and reading it to parents, caregivers and children assembled on round and square grey mats.

Activate your voice with us at this week’s Storytime. Take a close look at Challenge—America by Lois Mailou Jones, listen to a read aloud of Mi Voz by José Fragoso, then stay to create an artwork that amplifies your own voice! 

Meet in the Museum Lobby.

Do this at home! What do you want to change? Assemble a collage inspired by Lois 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.

A large, horizontally oriented collage has been created atop a rectangular piece of yellow construction paper.


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.
