Blue Star Contemporary is pleased to announce its public reopening. BSC has resumed public gallery hours to experience extended exhibitions, including Novel Ideas, Secret Passage, Giveth and Taketh, and More FindingsAll visitors are required to make an online reservation prior to their visit. 

Blue Star Contemporary (BSC) is the first and longest-running nonprofit venue for contemporary art in San Antonio. Its inception 34 years ago created a pathway that supported the revamp of a warehouse complex into an artist-centric, mixed-use development, sparking the total revitalization of San Antonio’s Southtown.

BSC hosts 15 contemporary exhibitions annually; a year-round after-school art education program for high school young people, the MOSAIC Student Artist Program; and the Berlin Residency Program. In 2017, BSC became the only San Antonio arts organization to be W.A.G.E.-certified, solidifying its commitment to fair compensation of artists and creative professionals.

Our Mission

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

Blue Star Contemporary currently welcomes nearly 30,000 visitors on-site each year, and more than 300,000 through off-site exhibitions in multiple regions across our geographically large city—an audience representative of San Antonio’s diverse population.

To complement our exhibitions, we present a variety of programs including workshops, artist talks, book clubs, panel discussions, and film screenings. The onsite Art Education Lab presents hands-on programming and education content for participants of all ages to delve deeper into the artwork on view.
