WEST AUSTIN STUDIO TOUR 2012
Big Medium is excited to announce the first annual West Austin Studio Tour!
Just like its beloved and long-running counterpart, the East Austin Studio Tour,
WEST will be a free, self-guided tour that champions the abundance of talent
of Austin’s large and wildly diverse creative community. The public is invited to
discover new artistic talent, see working studios, learn about artists’ tools,
processes, and inspirations, and support the arts community in our city by
building their collections and supporting local businesses.
For one weekend in May, artist studios, art galleries, and various spaces will
open up their doors to the public for the West Austin Studio Tour. WEST will
cover a wide geographical area, and just as non-homogenous as Austin
itself, the broad range of work will reflect the eclectic breadth of artists
working west of I35. Additionally, a number of spaces will be presenting
various art and performance events on all ends of the artistic spectrum.
WEST OPENING WEEKEND KICK-OFF AT THE PEOPLE’S GALLERY
Join us for a reception and open house to highlight the work of Austin artists
included in the 2012 People’s Gallery exhibition hosted by The City of Austin
Cultural Arts Division.
