STORYTIME: Reach for the Sky

Welcome the spring and reach for the sky! We’ll take a close-look at the tall sculpture Needle Tower by Kenneth Snelson and read-aloud The Emperor and the Kite by Jane Yolen. Following the story, make your own kite to “fly” in our sculpture garden or try your hand at building your own tower.


STORYTIME explores contemporary art through stories and movement. Museum staff will read aloud a book, introduce children to an artist in the collection, and lead a hands-on activity. Nursing moms welcome. Stroller parking is available in the Hirshhorn lobby. Groups of 10 or more should contact mcgettigant@si.edu to reserve a program in advance. Please note: snacks are not allowed inside the Museum, but you may eat outside on our Plaza before or after the program.
