by Kamran Abdi
The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden is inviting you for a guided tour (including lunch) of the home of the world’s most intriguing, inspiring, engrossing and always thought-provoking modern art on May 23rd. You will meet other people with love for art on a journey through contemporary art in all media through the twentieth and twenty-first centuries, including highlights such as the rugged and realistic sculptures of Auguste Rodin, the brutal religious imagery in the paintings of Francis Bacon, and the famed Dada and Surrealist painter Man Ray.


Before the tour, enjoy a meal at the Smithsonian Castle café and get to know some of your fellow travelers through the strange and fascinating journey through renowned modern art. The art gallery and museum tours are one of our most popular events and always sell out well in advance.

About the Hirshhorn
The Hirshhorn Story unfolds through an animated timeline of archival images and text. The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden is committed to acquiring and showing art that is current and topical today, as well as works with historical significance. In the past century, artists have brought their works down from pedestals and out of frames to enter the viewers’ space, using common objects, video, film, and other technology to bring the everyday into art. In addition to traditional historical themes and portraiture, works in our collection address emotion, abstraction, politics, process, religion, economics, and the immediate. With these works, we strive to illuminate the complexity, variety, and relevance of modern and contemporary art.

  2. Hi there would you mind stating which blog
    platform you’re using? I’m looking to start my own blog in
    the near future but I’m having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for
    something unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
