Blue Star Contemporary excels in its ability to flex and respond to current conversations and the needs of its surrounding community, always with an eye to its mission of inspiring the creative genius in us all by nurturing artists through innovative contemporary art.
Blue Star Contemporary hosts over 20 onsite and offsite dynamic exhibitions every year which include emerging, mid-career, and established artists working in a variety of media to provide a full range of the depth and scope of contemporary art.
To extend the reach of its exhibitions, BSC presents a variety of complementary programs: Open Studios, a film series which goes behind the scenes at artists’ studios; the Art Education Lab, which offers hands-on programming and education content; and outreach events including workshops, artist talks, panel discussions, and film screenings.
