- Thursday, March 28, 2019 | ALL DAY
The Big Give is South Texas’ day of online giving – and a great way for you to support your favorite nonprofit organizations, including Contemporary at Blue Star!
As San Antonio’s first and longest-running space for contemporary art and artists, Contemporary at Blue Star encourages empathy and inclusiveness in our community and provides a home that serves as a dynamic venue for inquiry, reflection, inspiration, and exploration of our world. We foster shared experiences between audiences of all ages and artists, whose global perspectives and creativity explore complex themes. Contemporary at Blue Star fulfills our mission to inspire, nurture, and innovate through contemporary art with nearly 20 exhibitions each year, professional development opportunities for artists, creative youth development initiatives, interactive programs such as Family Days, Artist Talks, Art Walks, and Film Fridays, and much more.
Contemporary at Blue Star’s Big Give donors have indeed given BIG over the last few years. Funds raised from the Big Give have supported all aspects of Contemporary at Blue Star’s exhibitions and programs, including an annual field trip for MOSAIC Student Artists to visit area universities, museums, and artist studios; travel expenses for the Berlin Residency artists; art supplies for the interactive stations in the Art Learning Lab; and so much more.
As a thank you to our donors, we will give away two artworks by Berlin Residency Program alumni artists to randomly-selected donors and will announce the recipients on Friday, March 29, 2019.
