Blue Star Contemporary

Blue Star Contemporary

Blue Star’s exhibitions, public programs, and education programs engage audiences of all ages with contemporary art, and fulfill our mission to inspire the creative genius in us all by nurturing artists in an innovative contemporary art museum. For 28 years, Blue Star has focused on exhibitions of contemporary art created by national, international, and especially local San Antonio artists. Annually, 300,000 people share in the dialogue created by Blue Star’s exhibitions and programs.

 

Blue Star was born out of a grassroots response to a major museum’s cancellation of the first exhibition of contemporary local art in 1986. The organizers were offered a space in an empty warehouse along the San Antonio River. The success of the exhibition led to a permanent home and the development of what would become the Blue Star Arts Complex. Blue Star provides excellent arts programming to under-served areas, particularly its Southtown and Lavaca neighborhoods southeast of downtown San Antonio.
