Chivalry might be dead, but sign painting isn’t, and the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft is taking note with For Hire: Contemporary Sign Painting In America. It’s bringing artists who will construct various murals and paintings to showcase this once nearly extinct art form. Currator Kathryn Hall says, “We see a lot of signs and advertisements being mass-produced through printing methods through LED and other modes of communication, but there’s still a draw for hand-printed signs. You see people having them in their homes and the handmade movement with restaurants that have hired people to add touches to their menus and on the outside of their building.”
