Take a break with HCCC, and join us for Craft Chats, a new series of short lunchtime conversations with our curators. From wherever you are, we invite you to tune into our Facebook Live page to explore themes and works from our current exhibitions. Ask questions via the Facebook chat function, and learn more about the exhibiting artists. This brief deep dive will leave you feeling inspired and ready to continue your day!

This month, HCCC Curatorial Fellow MarÍa-Elisa Heg will discuss “In Residence: 13th Edition,” a unique edition of our annual resident-artists exhibition. Join us as she unpacks the process and material explorations of the 2019-2020 cycle of resident artists, who work in fiber, metal, and clay, as well as materials like grapefruit skins and billboard vinyl. Learn more about this group of artists and how they have adapted nimbly to the changing circumstances of this momentous year. Following the exhibition tour, the audience is invited to participate in a live Q & A with Maria-Elisa.
