Art Cart: Light Your Fire

Sculpt your own symbol at this week’s Art Cart. Young artists will look closely at Double Candle by Sterling Ruby and build their own massive messages. 

Find the Art Cart on the Plaza and pick up your symbolic materials. In case of inclement weather, check in the Museum Lobby for our indoor location. 

Do this at home! What do you want to change? Assemble a collage inspired by Loïs Mailou Jones’s Challenge—America. Instructions here.

A large, horizontally oriented collage has been created atop a rectangular piece of yellow construction paper.


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 Saturday between 10am and1pm.
