The work of contemporary craftsmen who have reinvented the traditional design of the box will be featured in the second installment of HACC’s new Radius Showcase Series. On display at the HACC Gallery and Museum Shop from Thursday, Nov. 1 through Monday, Dec. 31, the showcase will feature both functional and decorative design interpretations.

HACC will kick-off the event with an open house from 1-3 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 4. All items on display will be available for sale. Radius is located on the ground floor of the State Museum of Pennsylvania, 300 North Third Street.
