Blue Start Contemporary was founded by artists and grown from a grassroots art exhibition in 1986, Blue Star Contemporary is the first and longest-running nonprofit space for contemporary art in San Antonio. BSC’s programs have grown, activating positive change in the art community and community-at-large. Blue Star presents an international array of artists, giving them the opportunity to create new work in its spacious, flexible galleries. In an effort to promote greater awareness among its constituents, curatorial preference is given to artists and projects that encourage empathy and inspire compassion.
“Serving on the Warhol Foundation Board is an amazing opportunity to fund arts organizations throughout the U.S., the work is monumental, meaningful and an incredible learning experience for me as an artist.”
Catherine Opie, Artist
