Blue Star Contemporary

About Blue Star Contemporary

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

Developed from a grassroots event in July of 1986, BSC is the first and longest-running nonprofit venue for contemporary art in San Antonio. In the years since its inception, BSC has grown with the community, instigating positive change in both the art community and the community at large.

Blue Star Contemporary continues to be an incubator for contemporary art in San Antonio as a W.A.G.E-certified organization committed to the fair compensation for creative work that hosts more than twenty exhibitions annually within its four on-site galleries and multiple offsite locations within the community. BSC’s exhibitions feature both emerging and world-renowned artists who hail both from the Alamo City and across the globe. Over 300,000 visitors each year experience contemporary art at BSC through exhibitions, the MOSAIC after-school education program, and community events, which is why Blue Star Contemporary stands firm in its commitment to inspire the creative genius in us all.

“I also helped to create displays and source images and materials for promotional materials. This is what we would call "bringing the archieves to life". Some of these projects included designing and creating the display of the New York Foundation of The Arts Immigrant Artist Mentoring Program Exhibition at Centro de Artes and the creation of the framework of the Berlin Residency Program Catalogue. The best part of the internship was seeing the projects I started be realized. The process of taking a preliminary concept and making it into something real and impactful was definitely the best part of the internship.”
