Please join HCCC in the Craft Garden for a special preview screening of Craft in America’s newest episode, SERVICE, which explores creativity, healing and our nation’s soldiers and veterans. As part of the PBS veterans initiative, Stories of Service, the episode tells the story of craft and the military. From the origins of the Army Arts & Crafts Program and the G.I. Bill to contemporary soldiers and veterans, SERVICE documents the power of the handmade to inspire, motivate and heal.

SERVICE premieres nationally on PBS on Sunday, November 2, 2014.  (The show is currently scheduled to air in Houston on November 5th, on channel 8.2 at 9:00 PM, but please check local listings.)  Click here to see a preview of the episode.

The event is free and open to the public. HCCC exhibitions, CraftTexas 2014 and In Residence: Work by 2013 Resident Artists, as well as the Asher Gallery, will remain open between 5:00 and 7:00 PM.
