Hirshhorn/AM: The Lemon Collective

For a special Hirshhorn/AM, enjoy a workshop and talk with founders of The Lemon Collective, a creative space and community for gathering and learning new skills. Lemon Collective co-founder Kate Zaremba, will demonstrate a workshop on creating repeat patterns using paper cut outs. Kate will take you through a brief history of surface design then demo a handful of repeats and layouts. You’ll create your own pattern using paper cut-outs and take home a zine illustrated by Kate that recaps what you learned.

Following the workshop, the co-founders Kate Zaremba, Linny Giffin, and Holley Simmons will discuss their inspiration for starting The Lemon Collective and what might be next for the organization.

Dolcezza Coffee & Gelato opens at 8:45 am.

Hirshhorn/AM: No Access Washington, DC

No Access Washington, DC: The Capital’s Hidden Treasures, Haunts, and Forgotten Places tells a story of the nation’s capital through places in, near, under, over, or around the city—a collection of spaces that most people don’t see, can’t see, rarely see, don’t know how to see, or haven’t seen.

Join author Beth Kanter and photographer Emily Pearl Goodstein for a morning chat about how they took a journey beneath DC’s most iconic buildings, like the massive undercroft below the Lincoln Memorial, and discovered hidden-in-plain-sight wonders, such as the mini Washington Monument and a neighborhood home that is a thriving habitat for plastic dinosaurs. Don’t miss an opportunity to discover a side of the city not shown on postcards, but gaze-worthy all the same.
