Family Day: From a Moment to Infinity

10 am–2 pm, Plaza and Sculpture Garden

The Hirshhorn and Smithsonian Gardens team up for a day of free family friendly activities inspired by “Orchids: A Moment” and “Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors.” Visitors of all ages are invited to pot their own orchid, try their hands at botanical sketching, obliterate an orchid with dots, create their own “orchidgami,” explore an infinity play space, and more. Visitors who dress the theme  “A Moment to Infinity” will be entered in a costume contest to win exciting prizes!
This event does not include admission to our special exhibition ‘Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors.’
