This season at @CraftHouston, we are exploring the rich history and current renaissance of hand-lettered signs in "For Hire: Contemporary Sign Painting in America." The exhibition, co-curated by @faythelevine & @sam_macon, showcases a range of contemporary sign painters who use traditional methods to create banners, sandwich boards, paper signs, murals, fictional advertisements, and more. Some pieces were installed at the start of the show earlier this fall, while others will be created in the gallery, during public hours, over the course of the exhibition. This will allow visitors to witness, firsthand, a variety of sign-painting processes. For example, artist Norma Jeanne Maloney (@norma.maloney) of @redrider_studios spent last weekend painting “The Great American Billboard” in the gallery, and what you see above is her contribution to the exhibit. Have you tried your hand at sign painting? What are some of the signs you see around your neighborhood? Let us know in the comments below or show us your pictures by tagging us and using the hashtag #SignPainters. “For Hire” is on view @CraftHouston through January 7, 2018. Don’t miss the chance to see this show!

Did you know that when @mardixonpic launched @52Museums, she was inspired by @52Quilters, a #quilting experiment by @chrismakesthings? Well, it comes full circle today! Take a look at our current exhibition at @CraftHouston, "Storyline: The Contemporary Quilt," a survey that highlights the spectrum of contemporary quilt-making techniques and traditions. Some of the quilts in #StorylineQuilts revisit points in history to spark new modes of inquiry and reflection. Identifying iconic paintings from art history in her "Portraits" series (2009), Anna Von Mertens (Peterborough, NH) revisits the myths that surround these familiar works, taking a closer look at their subjects, through the construct of aura photography and the relationship between emotion and color. Using hand-dye techniques to produce a bold palette, Von Mertens reverse engineers the auras of her subjects, based on their personalities and places in history, to provide a more personable account of each sitter. Pictured above: [1] Anna Von Mertens (@annavonmertens), “Arrangement in Grey and Black’s Aura (Whistler’s Mother), after James Whistler.” [2] “Log Cabins,” by Luke Haynes (@entropies). [3] Detail of “Freshman Magazine, August 2002 Issue (Broken Links),” by Aaron McIntosh (@amcintoshy). [4] Detail of “The Russia Project: 1987-1996,” by Kathryn Clark (@kathrynclarksf). “Storyline: The Contemporary Quilt” is co-curated by @CraftHouston Executive Director, Perry A. Price (@perryaprice), and #CraftHouston Curator, Kathryn Hall (@hallkathrynf). On view at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft now through January 7, 2018. Learn more at crafthouston.org.

Have you ever been to a museum where you can see the full range of the creative process? At @CraftHouston, you can see how an object is made and learn the story behind it in our resident artist studios, see exhibitions of contemporary craft in the galleries, and create your own artwork with hands-on activities. @AsherGallery, our retail space, is the place to shop one-of-a-kind gifts and jewelry made by a variety of local and national craft artists. The #CraftGarden, located behind the building, demonstrates the living connection between how plant materials are grown and used to create things like the blue jeans and T-shirts we wear every day. Pictured above: [1] Former #CraftResident @rebeccalynnhewitt working in her studio at @craftHouston. [2] View of “Collective Cadence,” an installation by @aliciadietzstudios.

Located in the @HoustonMuseumDistrict, @CraftHouston provides exhibition, retail, and studio spaces to support the work of local and national artists and serves as a resource for artists, educators, and the community-at-large.

The current show "INSTALLATION ART" invites the visitors to Walk-in the works from the Museion collection. The show features large scale installations and light works that give rise to a spatial dimension. In these picture we see the red carpet by Sylvie Fleury which invites to sit on it and read a magazine on it.

A lot of projects at Museion are dedicated to people with migration background. "New cultures" is one of those, and imagines the artistic environment as a place of knowledge and cultural exchange. Different languages, histories and personal experiences come together and create a new cultural family.

Every year more than 15,000 children and young people attend our programmes. For school pupils art represents an incredible arena for marking discoveries, being inspired and challenged. Museion's programmes for schools are a chance to experience all of this or just simply to see how a culture factory operates. In summery it's a chance to have fun, while learning about contemporary art.

Museion's mediaton programmes are designed to bring contemporary art to as many people as possible. A very big part of it is dedicated to our future, and so we have a lot of special programmes for schools and summer activities for children. Art weeks, Summer Labs and a activities in our exhibitions. The kids can enjoy hands-on experiences, try out new things and broaden their cultural horizons. .

Museion Media Facade - when the sun goes down a sophisticated system closes the slats on the two facades, draws back the curtains and activates the 36 video projectors distributed on the different floors of the building, transforming the glass surface into the museum's fifth exhibition "floor". Every year a few art projects will be shown on our Media Facade, most of the time in the summer months. But this year a new project will start tomorrow, October 14th, for the national day of contemporary art in Italy, when Diego Marcon's video will be displayed on the Facade starting 8pm.

Every year Museion invites a guest curator, who usually curates an important exhibition in our house. Last year it was Italian artist Francesco Vezzoli, who not only curated a show with works from our collection but presented his personal sculpture retrospective at Museion's fourth floor. In his sculptures, Vezzoli embraces the risk of tampering with historic artworks by basing his acts on irrefutable scientific research.

"Design is a state of mind", Martino Gamper's show, was an exhibition which connected art, design and architecture. The backbone of the exhibit was an extensive display of shelving systems from the 30s to the present day. Ranging from historic design classics and one-off pieces, to industrial, utilitarium, contemporary and newly commissioned work, the show included works by Gaetano Pesce, Ettore Sottsass, Giò Ponti, IKEA and many more.
