East Austin Studio Tour is Here

November 06, 2018

The East Austin Studio Tour is an annual event that is free to the public and lasts for two weekends during the month of November. During this event, the public can meet many of Austin' artists and artisans in their own unique creative spaces.

It runs from November 10 and 11, as well as November 17 and 18 from 11AM until 6PM.

The tour is organized by Big Medium, a non-profit organization designed with the goal of both cultivating and championing artists and contemporary arts itself throughout not just the city of Austin, but also the entire state of Texas as well.

On average, this event features over 1,000 artists and 100,000 attendees every year. Big Medium considers it a priority to offer access to these types of experiences so that they will be able to continue hosting these types of events for free and ensure that they are open to all members of the public.

New for 2018 is the launch of Creative Standard, which is a professional development program designed for artists. The goal of this program is to enable them to regularly convene, as well as provide various opportunities, information, and resources. The program is also designed to maintain and create standards of both integrity and professionalism which the creative community will uphold and adhere to.

Come find your new favorite local artist, support the local art community and maybe find the perfect piece for that one lonely wall in your house.

Art From the Streets rely on generous donations of people like YOU! 
Purchasing artwork supports the artists directly. 
Donating to our program helps us to offer a free Open Studio 
for the homeless and at risk. THANK YOU!
