Art Cart: Marvelous Mosaics

Brighten your day at this week’s Art Cart! Young artists will look closely at Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian’s mirror mosaics, explore geometric shapes, and create their own glittering mosaic

Find the Art Cart on the Third Level and pick up your mosaic-making materials.

Do this at home! Imagine you are inside a glittering diamond and design your own mirror mosaic. All you need is your imagination, tinfoil, colored paper, scissors, and glue. Instructions here.  

A homemade "mosaic" is taped to a mottled light brown surface with hints of black and white.


Want to make art inspired by your favorite Hirshhorn works on view? The Art Cart offers young artists a hands-on maker experience during their visit to the Hirshhorn. Each week’s Art Cart offers a fresh and fun theme featuring an artwork on view, an artmaking activity to do at the Museum, and kids’ projects to extend the fun at home!

The Art Cart is free; no registration required. Drop in any Thursday between 10am–Noon.
