> DESCRIPTION

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.

Each year Lawndale Art Center invites a guest juror to select from work submitted by artists living within 100 miles of Houston. Artists are invited to bring up to three works of art, not previously shown in Houston, to Lawndale Art Center where the work is juried on-site for a chance to be included in the show and a shot at $3,000 in cash awards.

For this year's exhibition, a total of 83 works by 67 artists were selected by juror Duncan Mackenzie, Artist/Critic/Writer and Co-Founder of Bad at Sports, for the exhibition from 922 works submitted by 366 artists.
