The Big Show 

About The Big Show

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 one of three cash prizes.

Anguilu's work can be found throughout Houston, including locations in the East End and most recently on Midtown's MHMRA building. His project at Lawndale will open this August to kick off the 2011-2012 season and remain on view through June 2012.
