Our Mission

To inspire the creative genius in us all by nurturing artists through innovative contemporary art.

Blue Star Contemporary currently welcomes nearly 18,000 visitors on-site each year, and more than 200,000 through off-site exhibitions in multiple regions across our geographically large city—an audience representative of San Antonio’s diverse population.

To complement our exhibitions, we present a variety of programs, including a film series, Open Studios, which goes behind the scenes at artists’ studios; the Art Education Lab, which presents hands-on programming and education content in partnership with the Bexar County Bibliotech; and outreach events including workshops, artist talks, book clubs, panel discussions, and film screenings.
