Big Medium works with a Review Committee to help select EAST participants. The three-member panel features Jaime Castillo, Curator, Christina Coleman, Artist, and Teruko Nimura, Artist.
Our design theme for 2018 uses trees as a way of emphasizing the importance of regionality and peace in response to our current tumultuous cultural climate. Ten EAST artists each illustrated a seasonal, native tree.
Artists include Karen Alexander, Federico Archuleta, Elizabeth Chiles, Ryan Davis, Gabe Langholtz, MakeATX, Ryan Sandison Montgomery, Ryan Runcie, Rachel Wolfson Smith, and Amanda Walker.
