Smithsonian – Hirshhorn Museum
The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, the Smithsonian Institution’s museum of modern and contemporary art, commissioned internationally renowned artist Barbara Kruger (American, b. Newark, New Jersey, 1945) to create an installation for one of the museum’s most visited public spaces. “Belief+Doubt” fills the lower level lobby and extends into the newly relocated museum bookstore. The entire space is wrapped in text-and-image-printed 3M Controltac™ Film, covering approximately 6,700 square feet of surface, including walls, floor and escalator sides. 3M donated the materials for this project.
