Houston Center for Contemporary Craft will explore the rich history and current renaissance of hand-lettered signs in "For Hire: Contemporary Sign Painting in America." The exhibition 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 will be installed from the start of the show, 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.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through January 7, 2018.
