Family Saturday

Bring the entire gang down to Blue Star's first Family Saturday of 2012!

This Family Saturday will be held on Saturday, January 28th from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m., and will feature an activity based on the work of Phillip King, whose large and colorful sculptures are currently on exhibit in the Main Gallery.

Short guided tours will introduce participants to the world of contemporary art through exploration of Blue Star's current exhibitions. In addition, every participant will receive a Family Activity Guide, the perfect resource for those who want to take a more in-depth look at the art or who prefer to go through the gallery at their own pace. There will also be a special area where younger children and their parents can color and create together. Family Saturday guided tours and art activities will run several times throughout the morning so that families may choose the duration of time they wish to spend at the gallery.

This event is free, but space is limited. Families are encouraged to reserve their spots by Friday, January 27th and can do so by contacting Emily R. Barker, Membership & Community Outreach Coordinator, at 210.227.6960 or by email at emily@bluestarart.org.

Priority registration is available for Blue Star Members. Blue Star Family Membership is available for $60 and funds Blue Star's exhibition and education programs like Family Saturdays! For more information on membership, visit www.bluestarart.org/support.

Family Saturday is presented as part of Blue Star's MOSAIC Education Program. The variety of innovative MOSAIC programs stir the imagination and inspire people of all ages while connecting Blue Star to the San Antonio community in fun, original ways.
