Big Medium's West Austin Studio Tour (WEST) is a free, annual, self-guided art event spanning across two weekends in May. WEST provides opportunities for the public to meet the local artists and artisans of Austin in their creative spaces. In its eight year, WEST will showcase the work of over 300 artists and is estimated to engage over 25,000 audience members. WEST has been growing rapidly every year to meet the needs of more artists in Austin, and serves as counterpart to the popular East Austin Studio Tour (EAST) in November. Your gift today helps the Austin visual arts community thrive by underwriting the costs of producing the West Austin Studio Tour and allows the tour to remain free and accessible to all. Save the date for May 11-12 and 18-19, 2019 to attend this year's festivities.
