Big Medium presents East Austin Studio Tour
Big Medium’s East Austin Studio Tour is a free, annual, self-guided art event. Through collaboration with the community, East provides opportunities for the public to meet the makers: the local artists and artisans who drive Austin’s culture.
What to See:
- Artist Studios
This is where the creativity begins. For many of these spaces, this is the one time of year that you can get a special glimpse into the inspiration, process, and techniques of the artist. In this category, you can see home studios, spaces in larger studio complexes, or stand-alone commercial studios.
This category is for established art venues with regular gallery programming. These spaces are committed to exhibiting art year-round, supporting artists with opportunities to share their work and vision with the public in a dedicated space.
- Temporary Exhibitions
Temporary Exhibitions include pop-up shows, often created specifically for West. In this category, you can see exhibitions in warehouse spaces, empty homes, libraries, small businesses, and other unconventional venues.
Happenings are time-based art events. This category may include performances, workshops, opening receptions, installations, competitions, art-centered celebrations, educational programming, and art-themed parties.
- Partner Programs
Partner Programs serve to educate our community about the fellow organizations and businesses who support the arts year-round in Austin. It includes a variety of offerings, such as special events by art organizations, private tours, and fundraisers that support the future of East.
Boundaries will be: East of I-35, West of Hwy. 183, South of Hwy. 290, North of Riverside Dr. For a full list of participating studios, go the event website.
