Arts & Culture

Developed from a grassroots event in July of 1986, Blue Star Contemporary is the first and longest-running nonprofit venue for contemporary art in San Antonio. Typically open Thursday-Sunday. First Friday is a very popular night. It can be fun, but crowded. We recommend the less-crowded first Thursday.
