Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden

About Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden

Now entering its fifth decade, the Hirshhorn is a leading voice for contemporary art and culture and provides a national platform for the art and artists of our time. Located in the heart of Washington, DC, on the National Mall, we are free to all, and open 364 days a year. As one of the most visited modern art museums in the U.S., we seek to share the transformative power of modern and contemporary art by creating meaningful, personal experiences in which art, artists, audiences and ideas converge. Through groundbreaking exhibitions, events, research and acquisitions, we create the space where people encounter the most important artists of the 21st century. The Hirshhorn’s holdings encompass one of the most important collections of postwar American and European art in the world. We are committed to providing the artists of today a national platform to explore new ways to create, with performance, digital media, video, and technology.
