Summer Shows at Blue Star

After celebrating the 25th anniversary of its annual Red Dot fundraiser with a veritable who’s who of the San Antonio art scene, Blue Star rolls out four new exhibitions showcasing anything but the usual suspects. Representing works by 21 artists selected from an open call in 2014, the summer shows explore the anti-heroes and understated places in our lives (“Everyday Is Ordinary”), technology and communication (“Transmissions”), time, history, memory and containment (“Of Reference, Of Departure, Of Origin”) and the boundaries between interiors and exteriors (“Stellar-Scape”).

Price: $3-$5 (free on First Thursday and First Friday)
