What to See

Artist Studios This is where the creativity begins. For many of these spaces, this is the one time of year that you can get a special glimpse into the inspiration, process, and techniques of the artist. In this category, you can see home studios, spaces in larger studio complexes, or stand-alone commercial studios.
Galleries This category is for established art venues with regular gallery programming. These spaces are committed to exhibiting art year-round, supporting artists with opportunities to share their work and vision with the public in a dedicated space.
Temporary Exhibitions Temporary Exhibitions include pop-up shows, often created specifically for EAST. In this category, you can see exhibitions in warehouse spaces, empty homes, libraries, small businesses, and other unconventional venues.
Happenings Happenings are time-based art events. This category may include performances, workshops, opening receptions, installations, competitions, art-centered celebrations, educational programming, and art-themed parties. Be sure to check the date and time for each Happening.
Libraries Big Medium partners with the Austin Public Library to feature exhibitions at library branches within the tour boundaries. Our Library liaison, Carlos Rodriquez-Brondo, curates each show. Be sure to check the open hours for each Library.
Schools This category highlights the schools in our community. Visit these spaces to discover what east Austin’s young artists are creating.
