For One Weekend Only, Local Artists Sell Works at the Museum; NSO In Your Neighborhood Concert Closes the Festivities

Smithsonian Enterprises and Washington Project for the Arts invite holiday shoppers to a pop-up shop at the Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 5 and 6, 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., during the Smithsonian Holiday Festival. Unique, exciting and reasonably priced works by more than 20 Washington, D.C.-area artists will be on sale in the Hirshhorn lobby. Many of the artists will be on hand to talk about their work with visitors.

“I’m excited about the opportunity to collaborate with an organization that supports such talented artists and look forward to developing future projects with artists in our community,” said Lisa Gold, the Hirshhorn’s director of public engagement.

In conjunction with the event, the National Symphony Orchestra Horn Ensemble will perform an “NSO In Your Neighborhood” concert of holiday music in the Lerner Room Sunday, Dec. 6, at 4 p.m. Admission is free and seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
