Since its inception 25 years ago, Blue Star Contemporary Art Center continues to fill San Antonio’s contemporary art void, gaining attention from visitors and artists around the world and a spot on San Antonio magazine’s Best of the City 2011 list. A family membership bestows a wealth of benefits to patrons, including 10% off at applicable area restaurants, 10% off Blue Star merchandise, and entrance to exclusive openings, lectures, and black-tie water-gun battles. Discover an ever-rotating and ever-innovative lineup of exhibits including Four Decades with Colour—running until mid-February—which billets more than 20 pieces by sculptor-painter Philip King. Meanwhile, Untitled showcases works by British abstract sculptor and Texas convert Philip John Evett. Form and structure reign supreme at the center, which displays an arsenal of abstract forms that guests can circle, study, and recreate with mashed potatoes during dinner.
