It’s Big Medium’s 18th year producing a studio tour in Austin, and as we all know, this year is unlike any other.
For starters, in response to the pandemic, rather than in-person studio visits, the tour offers creative ways to safely experience art through virtual programs and self‑guided visits to outdoor public art.
Also, forget the divide between the East and West Austin tours. The newly combined Austin Studio Tour is a citywide celebration of art featuring more than 420 Austin-based artists and collaboratives in Austin.
The tour happens November 14–22, and you can peruse the roster of artists at bigmedium.org/austinstudiotour/artists
On Nov. 14, Big Medium will launch the tour’s official website, AustinStudioTour.org.
That website will feature expanded artist profiles, images of artworks, an online Group Exhibition, virtual studio visits, demonstrations, and artist talks. There will also be a digital map that highlights outdoor installations and public art.
Sightlines is a community partner of the Austin Studio Tour.
