BUSINESS PARTNERS


Business Partners are local boutiques, coffee shops, restaurants, bars, and other retail businesses that support the art community in Austin’s east side. Business Partners provide vital funds that keep EAST programming free and accessible to the public. In turn, Big Medium encourages tour goers to support these select local businesses by visiting them while planning their EAST schedule, as well as year‑round.
