We’re switching up Storytime to a drop-in experience while we prepare new exhibitions for spring openings. Join Hirshhorn educators any time between 10 am–noon; we will host read-alouds at 10:30 am and 11:30 am.
In celebration of spring, join the Hirshhorn for a read-aloud of the bilingual book Call Me Tree, by Maya Christina Gonzalez (we’ll be reading it in English). Take a close look at the Museum Lobby’s tables, created by artist Hiroshi Sugimoto using a 700-year-old nutmeg tree, then create your own tree- and blossom-inspired works.
Meet on the Lower Level.
Do this at home! Celebrate spring by transforming a plain coffee filter into your own sculptural work of art bursting with color. 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. If there are access services or accommodations that can make your experience more inclusive (e.g., ASL interpretation, live captioning, etc.), please contact firstname.lastname@example.org; 1–2 week’s advance notice is recommended but not required. For a group of ten or more, please contact email@example.com to reserve a program in advance.
