Join Us!

Since the first exhibition in June of 1986, Blue Star Contemporary has served as San Antonio’s artistic home for inspiring the creative genius in us all by nurturing artists in an innovative contemporary setting. A pioneer for artistic and community engagement in the King William, Lavaca and South Town neighborhoods, Blue Star Contemporary plays a major role in the revitalization of the downtown area. Blue Star Contemporary maintains a robust calendar of exhibitions and public programs that foster arts dialogue in San Antonio and beyond.

Blue Star Contemporary's Membership Program inspires an interest in contemporary art by bringing together art lovers, cultural enthusiasts, artists, collectors, and curious minds. Blue Star Contemporary counts on our members to nurture enthusiasm for high caliber visual arts and programming and to sustain our innovative programs.

We want you to be a part of this special group and we need your support!
