Red Dot 2010

Now in its 20th year, Blue Star's annual Red Dot fundraiser raises critical dollars in operational support as well as Blue Star Contemporary Art Center exhibitions, satellite exhibits around the city, ARTsmart educational programming, lectures, workshops, and free Family Days.

Blue Star/Red Dot 2010, Co-Chaired by Cristina Wheeler and Mike McClain, is a highly anticipated art sale benefiting Blue Star Contemporary Art Center and is an opportunity to purchase contemporary art selected by collectors from San Antonio and other Texas cities. It is also a great chance to meet artists and collectors from around the state.

Fifty percent of the art sales from the evening go back to participating artists in the community making BLUE STAR/ RED DOT the event in San Antonio that gives back the largest amount to artist through artwork sales. At last year's event over $50,000 was given back to artists through the evenings art sales. This tremendous support stays true to the mission of Blue Star Contemporary Art Center and speaks to the history and roots of the organization, continuing its tradition as an artist run institution and supporting community artists through programming, exhibitions, art education and events.

Red Dot's success reflects San Antonio's continued commitment in keeping contemporary art thriving. Please call 210.227.6960 for sponsorship or collector information.
