Storytime: Shape Hunt


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

Many artists use shapes to create sculptures. Join us for a read aloud of "The Shape of Me" by Dr. Seuss and a shape scavenger hunt through the Hirshhorn sculpture garden. Following the read-aloud, we’ll play with creating our own creations using different shapes.

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.
