Please join HCCC for a members-only private tour of In the Studio: Craft in Postwar America, 1950–1970 at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. On this special evening, HCCC members are invited to tour the exhibition with Anna Walker, who is the Windgate Foundation Curatorial Fellow for Contemporary Craft at MFAH and a former HCCC curator and curatorial fellow.

In the Studio: Craft in Postwar America, 1950-1970 features nearly 40 objects made from clay, wood, fiber, and metal. The exhibition showcases the early decades of the Studio Craft movement, when artists championed a revival of traditional skills. The period produced distinctive regional centers of craft in California, New York, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania, each with its own aesthetics, techniques, and stylistic identity. Providing a snapshot of craft across America, the works of art in this exhibition are made by many of the masters who established new aesthetics and methods of creating in their respective mediums.

Admission to the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, is free on Thursdays. Members should meet in the lobby of the Caroline Wiess Law Building at 5:45 PM. Information on parking at MFAH can be found here.

This event is full! To be added to the waiting list, please contact Suzanne Sippel, at ssippel@crafthouston.org. Not a member? Join here.
