Local Business Partners


Local Business Partners are local restaurants, bars, boutiques and other retail businesses that have committed to supporting Big Medium by donating a percentage of sales during both weekends of the West Austin Studio Tour. WEST Local Business Partners directly support Austin’s artists and the contemporary arts community by providing vital funds that keep WEST programming free and accessible to the public. In turn, Big Medium encourages tour goers to support these select local businesses by visiting them while planning their WEST schedule, as well as year‑round.

Local Business Partners are located within WEST boundaries (West of I-35, East of Mopac, South of 183, North of William Cannon). Each business commits to supporting Big Medium with a donation of 10% of sales during both WEST weekends, or a minimum of $300 if proceeds do not exceed that amount. Our Local Business Partners are welcome to exhibit art in their space as part of their WEST participation but are not required.
