Big Medium (formerly Bolm Studios) is a grassroots, artist-run organization working towards becoming a nonprofit. For the past six years Big Medium has introduced and run programs such as the East Austin Studio Tour and the Texas Biennial. In addition to those programs, Big Medium operates an alternative gallery space, 20 artist studios, and has just recently introduced a project space that will be used for exhibitions, workshops and educational programs. Please join us at our first fundraising event: “Night Owl and Early Bird”. This two day event is both a call to artists and art supporters. Big Medium needs the financial and creative support from the community it has been serving and enriching since 2002.
