Red Dot 2011

Blue Star/Red Dot 2011, presented by Gore Design Completions and co-chaired by Lori Dunlap and Rick Liberto, is San Antonio's most highly anticipated art sale of the year, benefiting Blue Star Contemporary Art Center's exhibitions and educational programs. This fundraiser provides the opportunity to purchase contemporary artwork selected by collectors from around the state and supports San Antonio's premier contemporary art institution.

Join us as we honor Patron Honoree Guillermo Nicolas and Artist Honoree Ethel Shipton and enjoy the culinary masterpieces of star chef Andrew Weissman.

For 21 years, Blue Star's annual Red Dot fundraiser has raised essential funding for operational support as well as exhibitions, satellite exhibits around the city, MOSAIC educational programming, lectures, workshops, and free Family Days.

Fifty percent of the profit from art sales is re-distributed back to the participating artists in the community, making BLUE STAR/RED DOT the single largest event in San Antonio that gives back to artists through the sale of their work. At last year's event over $75,000 was given back to artists. The tremendous support stays true to the mission of Blue Star Contemporary Art Center as the first contemporary art institution in San Antonio and speaks to the history and roots of the organization, continuing its tradition as an artist run institution supporting artists through programming, exhibitions, art education and events.

Red Dot's success reflects Blue Star Contemporary Art Center, a 501C3 non-profit organization, and San Antonio's continued commitment to keeping contemporary art thriving and Blue Star's mission of inspiring the creative genius in all of us. Please call 210.227.6960 or visit for sponsorship, collector and ticket information.
