Hirshhorn Sculpture Garden preliminary concept design.

Since the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden opened in 1974, its collection and programs have grown and evolved, establishing the Hirshhorn as one of the most visited modern art museums in the country. The Museum is currently planning two important projects: a revitalization of the Sculpture Garden and repairs to the building envelope.  These projects will enable the Hirshhorn campus to support the museum’s mission and its expanded programming and collections, as well as enhance visitor experience and address critical infrastructure needs.
