As well as our departments of Jewelry; Music; Drama; Dance; Creative Writing; Music Business, Performance & Technology; Game Development, Animation & Motion Graphics; Professional Photography; Radio, Television, Film and Visual Communication.
Weekend 2: WEST & EAST Austin Studio Tour- Off Campus Self Guided Bat Tours
Austin Studio Tour has 96 participants affiliated with Austin Community College this year. In order to celebrate our Riverbats in their own studios and public exhibition spaces, we decided to take our second weekend of tours off campus and into the community.
Our Bat Tours are self guided, and can be accessed in these ways:
To curate your own ACC Bat Tour, access the main map on Big Medium’s website. From there, use the “filter” navigation at top right, scroll down to “affiliations” and click “Austin Community College” to filter only the 96 ACC participants on the city map.

Cultivating Community through Art: Sam Coronado's Serie Project and its Continuing Legacy
This exhibition highlights the wide-reaching influence of Sam Coronado (1946 – 2013) former ACC professor, artist mentor, and Chicano art movement icon. Coronado’s teachings and guidance made a lasting impact on Austin’s artistic community and many others beyond Texas borders. A substantial element to his legacy is the grant-funded Serie Project (1993-2013), which provided new opportunities for hundreds of emerging and established artists to learn screen-printing techniques by producing prints at Coronado Studio, located in the Austin neighborhood of Montopolis.
Coronado’s commitment to equity, inclusion, and education reverberates through his work at the Serie Project, his time at ACC, and his mentorship to students. Coronado ensured that the high-quality works made at the studio were reproducible, affordable, and represented the viewpoints of undervalued communities. This exhibition demonstrates the far-reaching impacts and new opportunities that can be cultivated through persistence and dedication to the arts.
