Visitors in plaza

Art can be a jumping off point into a whole world of expression and ideas. Each Hirshhorn tour is a conversation, rather than a lecture, and is led by enthusiastic Gallery Guides who are also artists and educators. Expect to encounter surprising new connections between you and the art and artists of our time. Please note that submitting this form is only a request.
