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.
What could you create from an empty box? Join us for a reading of Not a Box, by Antoinette Portis, and a close look at artworks by artist Joseph Cornell. We’ll use our imaginations to build our own out-of-the-box works of art.
Meet on the Second Level.
Do this at home! Use your imagination to construct your own three-dimensional box inspired by artist Joseph Cornell. 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 email@example.com; 1–2 week’s advance notice is recommended but not required. For a group of ten or more, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve a program in advance.
