Our museum may be closed for the moment, but the power of art—to bring people together, to offer inspiration, to respond to history in real time, to spark curiosity, or simply to occupy yourself—remains.

That’s why we’re introducing #HirshhornInsideOut, a way for you to remain connected through artist- and curator-led insights and Hirshhorn-inspired hands-on art activities for adults and kids of all ages, all from your phone or computer. We’ll challenge ideas about what art can be with a focus on the ideas that artists have.

ARTISTS IN QUARANTINE

Who better to bring art into your home than artists themselves? Every week, you’ll get an exclusive look inside the homes and studios—and in some cases, temporary home-studios—of artists who are, just like you, adjusting to new routines and ways of working. Together, these accounts will serve as a living archive of this moment and the ideas that persist.

KIDS AT HOME

Are you home with kids? Keep kids of all ages engaged with unique projects inspired by your favorite Hirshhorn artworks. New projects are released every week.

Art is everywhere, including home.

Join us on Instagram, Facebook, YouTube, or Twitter, where we’ll connect you to our curators who will help us tour the collection through keen insights and observations. We’ll also issue creative challenges that will invite you to sketch, mold, look closely, and maybe even discover your inner-artist, or that of your kids. Send pictures of your creations for us to share and visit us online to see how your neighbors around the globe respond.
