Upcoming Events & Artist Opportunities

The Big Show 2009

July 10 - August 8, 2009

Opening Reception Friday, July 10, 2009, 6:30-8:30 PM

The Big Show is Lawndale Art Center’s annual open-call, juried exhibition. It has been an important venue through which emerging and under-represented Houston area artists gain exposure since the show’s conception in 1984. The Big Show was formerly the East End Show, sponsored by the East End Progress Association, at Lawndale’s original location. In 2008 Lawndale received 1,014 submissions by 407 artists. Guest Juror Aram Moyashedi, Curator for LA><ART in Los Angeles, selected 95 works by 60 artists for the exhibition.

Guest juror for the 2009 Big Show is Laura Fried, Assistant Curator, Contemporary Art Museum, St. Louis.
