Join HCCC for a panel discussion with several Houston artists featured in Dining and Discourse, currently on view in the main gallery. Moderated by Curatorial Fellow Kathryn Hall, the panel will address topics related to dining ware and dining furniture design, sustainable practices in food and craft culture, and the traditions associated with the objects found within our own dining rooms. Audience members are encouraged to share their own ideas and to participate in the discussion. The event is free and open to the public.
