Art Cart: Perform With Soft Sculptures

What materials can you think of that stretch and squish like skin? At this Art Cart, young artists will learn about artist Senga Nengudi’s soft sculptures and performance through movement, texture exploration, and art making. 

Find the Art Cart on the Third Level and pick up your soft sculpture making materials and perform!

Dance and make at home! Create your own dancing soft sculpture with socks or nylons and pantry items. Instructions here.

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-12pm.  

Stroller Parking is available in the Lobby and the Lower Level.
