About Big Medium

Who We Are
Big Medium is a nonprofit organization dedicated to championing and cultivating artists and the contemporary arts in Austin and across Texas. Through our programs and partnerships, we are working to foster the arts and facilitate an inclusive cultural dialogue between artists and their communities.

What We Do
Big Medium produces the East Austin Studio Tour (EAST), the West Austin Studio Tour (WEST), the Texas Biennial, the Tito's Prize, and presents innovative exhibitions throughout the year in the Big Medium Gallery. We also provide studio space to artists at Canopy and umbrella several artists and creative organizations through our Sponsored Projects program. Big Medium engages over 1,000 artists and 100,000 attendees in artistic experiences each year. Providing access to these experiences is our priority, so that we may continue to keep our programs are free and open to the public and support artists in our community.

All Big Medium programs seek to provide opportunities for artists to create, exhibit, and discuss their work and process, as well as celebrate a multitude of voices and practices in our creative community.
