In response to the spread of COVID-19, HCCC is currently closed to the public until further notice, for the safety of our staff, artists, and visitors.
**Update from Our Executive Director, May 1, 2020**
Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced the state’s stay-at-home order would expire on May 1st and that select businesses and public institutions, including some museums, would be allowed to open. However, for the safety of our staff, artists, and visitors, Houston Center for Contemporary Craft will remain closed to the public until further notice.
The careful planning for the reopening of the Center is underway, with the expectation of limited operations resuming this summer, prior to the resumption of full-scale activities when appropriate. The safety of our staff, artists, and visitors remains our highest priority, and when we do reopen, we will implement safeguards and protocols to support the necessary social distancing and community hygiene. As a valued member of our community, you will hear from us first, once our reopening date has been determined.
Over the last several weeks, we have developed and shared with you a number of new virtual programs to connect with you wherever you are, and we hope you have enjoyed these offerings. We look forward to announcing more virtual initiatives and programs in the coming weeks.
We want to thank you, our avid craft enthusiasts, for your continued support of the Center during these unprecedented times. We are resolute in delivering our mission to educate the community on the significance of craft, and as we forge ahead, your tax-deductible gift of any amount would be most appreciated. Your gift will help us continue to provide free educational programming to the public and sustain our greatest needs during these difficult times, preparing us for the moment when we are able to welcome you back to the Center.
Until then, we hope you will stay safe and well, and please keep in touch through our website, e-newsletter, and social media.
–Perry Allen Price, Executive Director
