After years of exhibiting work in a Bolm Road warehouse that it had renovated to provide affordable studio space for artists, the nonprofit art collaborative known as Big Medium – best known for helping promote contemporary art across the city and state through the annual East and West Austin Studio Tours and the juried Texas Biennial – was invited to consult on a nearby development called Canopy, a three-building complex of artists' studios, galleries, offices, and other creative outlets. In Building 2, the creative powerhouse claimed one of the high-ceilinged spaces for itself as a sister space to Big Medium at Bolm, and it's a good spot to catch work by some of the rising stars on the local art scene.
