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 submit up to three works of art, not previously shown in Houston, for a chance to be included in the exhibition and a shot at $3,000 in cash awards.

For this year's exhibition, a total of 76 works by 62 artists were selected by juror George Scheer, Executive Director & Co-Founder, Elsewhere, Greensboro, NC, for the exhibition from 972 works submitted by 355 artists. Artists selected for the exhibition include:

Fariba Abedin, Shawn Artis, Qindeel Butt, Erick Calderon, Lindy Chambers, Peter Chok, Lim Chung, Felipe Contreras, Bryan Cope, Terry Crump, Sonya Cuellar, Heather Den Uijl, Laura Veles Drey, Shannon Duckworth, Adrienne Duncan, Trey Duvall, Sherman Finch, Vincent Fink, Steve Ross Fisher, Mary Forbes, John Forse, Rachel Gardner, J.G.
