Artobus: Bus Trip


Bus Trip to the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden

Friday, October 11, 2019 • 8:00 am–5:00 pm


Ride with us to Washington, D.C. for a day of art experiences! We will enjoy a guided tour of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the Smithsonian’s contemporary art museum, and its exhibition, Manifesto: Art x Agency, which introduces visitors to artist manifestos from the 20th century and their impact. The exhibition is divided up into three section, with the first including seminal works by artists such as Jean Arp, Giacomo Balla, Alexander Calder, Salvador Dalí, Helen Frankenthaler, George Grosz, Hannah Höch, René Magritte, André Masson, Joan Miró, Joan Mitchell, Barnett Newman, Jackson Pollock, and Tsuruko Yamazaki. Following the guided tour, you will have time to explore nearby museums on your own.

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 on the National Mall, the museum is free and open 364 days a year. As one of the most visited modern art museums in the U.S., the Hirshhorn seeks 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, the museum creates 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.
