The Museum Experience is Houston’s newest cultural block party! Join the Houston Museum District on the last Saturday of January, April, July and September. The Museum Experience features four walk-able “zones” to help visitors navigate through the area and learn more about all 19 museums in a more personal way. Each zone will showcase a handful of museums at a time, complete with special programming, pedicabs in select zones, and food trucks.

For Zone 2, join HCCC for the Annual Gathering of the Guilds, featuring all-day craft demonstrations by a variety of local artist guilds. Bring the whole family to see the demonstrations, current exhibitions, artist studios and more. Delicious, all-natural PB&J sandwiches will be available for purchase at the Monster PBJ food truck, which will be parked in our lot.

PARKING:  The HCCC parking lot will be blocked off for the food truck and artist demonstrations.  However, some parking will be available in the north end of the First Presbyterian church lot (just south of HCCC at 5300 Main Street).

Featured guilds include:

  • ClayHouston
  • Clear Lake Basket Weavers Guild
  • Contemporary Handweavers of Houston
  • Gulf Coast Woodturners Association
  • Houston Area Blacksmiths Association
  • Houston Area Fiber Artists
  • Houston Bead Society
  • Houston Calligraphy Guild
  • Houston Metal Arts Guild
  • Houston Polymer Clay Guild
  • MOSAICO
  • Texas Association of Original Doll Artists
  • Quilt Guild of Greater Houston

Our friends across the street, Lawndale Art Center, will host Design Fair 2013, a unique marketplace, featuring vintage modern objects of the 20th century and examples of cutting-edge contemporary design. The Texas Co-Op, a special section of the Fair, will become an on-site laboratory with demos and 3D interactions ($5 admission). Lawndale will have the Happy Endings Asian Fusion food truck parked in their lot.
