The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden is open Thursday – Sunday (and CLOSED Monday – Wednesday)
Through July 2022, the Hirshhorn presents Laurie Anderson in the second floor galleries. A mix of dark, immersive installations and video, The Weather is a little like walking into a modern version of Da Vinchi’s notebook.
The exhibit is trippy and a little crazy (my 8 year old was scared the whole time), but it was also beautiful and inspiring. I could not stop looking at the sculpture of the dog constellation, which seemed to move (no one else in my family noticed the movement, but I found it mesmerizing).
Even if, like my daughter, modern art frightens you, I recommend zipping through this one while it’s in DC. It’s a fun trip down the rabbit hole.
