Support from our community is essential to ambitious projects like the Texas Biennial, a program that is dedicated to promoting and celebrating contemporary art statewide. The Biennial was founded in 2005 by a small group of passionate artists in Austin, and has evolved to spark collaborations with organizations across the state that showcase the vibrant contemporary arts scene in Texas. We are privileged to have many generous supporters, and invite you to become part of this growing community!

The Texas Biennial is a project of the nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization Big Medium, headquartered in Austin. Every contribution to the Texas Biennial is fully tax deductible. Donors will be provided with a receipt for tax purposes.

We also welcome in-kind sponsorships that help support our programming and events.
