Response to COVID-19

HCCC is open to the public with limited hours, and new safety protocols in place.  Our exhibition galleries are currently closed for installation through June 4th. However, we encourage you to make a reservation beginning June 5th, when we open our summer exhibitions, “Suited Up: Contemporary Armor Making in Texas” and “9ja Vision: The Fiber & Mixed-Media Work of Joy O. Ude.” The Craft Garden and artist studios remain open to the public.

**Open Limited Hours**
Thursday – Saturday, 10 AM – 5 PM

For visitor and staff safety, Houston Center for Contemporary Craft has implemented the following protocols for all who enter the building:

  • Face masks must be worn over the nose and mouth by all visitors older than the age of two. (Those who are unable to wear a mask due to health conditions are asked to refrain from visiting in person and to take advantage of HCCC’s virtual events and educational content.)
  • Capacity in the building is limited.
  • In-person tours and group visits are not permitted at this time. However, learn about our free virtual group tours and workshop kits.
  • Social distance of six feet between visitors is required at all times. Parties may remain together; children must stay with adults.
  • Visitors showing signs of illness at any time during their visit will be asked to return at a later date.
  • The Resident Artist Hall is open to a limited number of people. Visitors are allowed to engage with the artists in their studios at the door but are not allowed to enter.
  • High-touch surfaces will be cleaned throughout the day, and hand-sanitizer units are stationed throughout the building.
  • Visitors must enter through the back entrance, adjacent to the parking lot. The front entrance is currently closed.
