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.


The Big Show 2015 award winners selected by guest juror, George Scheer, Executive Director & Co-Founder, Elsewhere, Greensboro, NC, were announced at the opening reception on July 10, 2015. In lieu of awarding a limited number of cash awards to select artists, the $3000 in awards will be divided equally among the 62 participating artists. Scheer also awarded five special distinction awards to artists:


Allyson Huntsman
Amy Richards
Herbert Shapiro
Charles L. Thomas
Justin Zachary


For this year's exhibition, a total of 76 works by 62 artists were selected from 972 works submitted by 355 artists. Artists selected for the exhibition include:
