Children stand on small mats with their arms outstretched as part of an education event on the Hirshhorn's Plaza.

Storytime is currently a drop-in experience. Join Hirshhorn educators any time between 10 am–noon; we will host read-alouds at 10:30 am and 11:30 am. ASL interpretation is provided at the 10:30 reading.

How do you like to play? Join us to explore Yayoi Kusama’s work, an artist who plays with color and shape! Together, we’ll look closely at Pumpkin by Kusama, read Let’s Play, by Hervé Tullet, and play with creating our own works of art. 

Meet on the Plaza.

Do this at home! Create your own pinch pot inspired by artist Yayoi Kusama. Instructions here. 

A small, two-leafed plant grows out of a orange pumpkin-shaped pot featuring vertical patterns of polka dots.


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 tons of 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. ASL is provided at the 10:30am reading. If there are additional access services or accommodations that can make your experience more inclusive, please contact hmsgeducation@si.edu; 1–2 week’s advance notice is recommended but not required. Groups of ten or more, should contact hmsgeducation@si.edu with their requested program date and group details.
