Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden is an art museum beside the National Mall in Washington, DC. The museum was initially endowed during the 1960s with the permanent art collection of Joseph H. Hirshhorn. It was designed by architect Gordon Bunshaft and is part of the Smithsonian Institution. The museum’s focus is contemporary and modern art and focuses on the post–World War II period. Bunshaft conceived the Hirshhorn as “a large piece of functional sculpture” among the shrine-like structures of the National Mall. The hollow-centered, elevated cylinder—primarily a gallery for paintings—floats above nearly four acres of landscaped grounds for sculpture.
Considering the immense value of the building’s assets, Smithsonian’s Hirshhorn Museum added enhanced security to protect against bomb blasts and higher high-impact events by installing Commercial Security Window Film and Impact Protection Attachment Systems.
The Hirshhorn Museum is located at Independence Ave SW &, 7th St SW, Washington, DC 20560
