Pit Stops

Get involved in the West Austin Studio Tour as a Pit Stop!

The 2018 West Austin Studio Tour (WEST) is a free, annual, self-guided art event spanning the weekends of May 12-13 & 19-20. WEST provides the public with an opportunity to connect with the local creative community, discover new artistic talent, see working studios, and explore unique exhibition spaces throughout Austin.

About WEST Pit Stops

WEST Pit Stops are local restaurants and bars that have committed to supporting Big Medium with a percentage of their sales during both WEST weekends. WEST Pit Stops directly support Austin's artists and the contemporary arts community by providing vital funds that keep WEST programming free and accessible to the public.

Each local restaurant or bar commits to supporting Big Medium with a donation equal to 10% of sales during WEST weekend tour hours (11am-6pm), or $250 if proceeds do not exceed that amount.

In return for supporting WEST, Pit Stops receive:

  • Official WEST sign
  • Listing on the WEST map (over 5,000 printed and distributed widely to artists, local businesses, hotels, and community partners)
  • Listing on the WEST website (over 20,000 unique visitors)
  • Promotional materials
