About the Tree Theme

Ten WEST artists each illustrated an element of a native Texas tree, all of the works were incorporated into the collage design elements. Big Medium’s design theme is inspired by a desire to promote the importance of regionality and hope amidst a challenging cultural climate. The goal is to celebrate the diversity of our creative community by creating a dynamic, collaborative design.
