Rooted, Revived, Reinvented: Basketry in America
June 2–Sept. 2 | Houston Center for Contemporary Craft
Long after “underwater basket weaving” became the go-to stand-in for a frivolous or indulgent activity, the National Basketry Organization (a real thing!) teams up with the University of Missouri to reclaim the basket narrative at HCCC. The five-part exhibition examines the timeless medium that elegantly straddles the divide between function and form. Free. Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, 4848 Main St. 713-529-4848.
