San Antonio’s Contemporary Beacon

* Blue Star Art Bounty

BY Catherine D. Anspon // 06.19.15

A recent road trip to San Antonio led to the rediscovery of a smart contemporary destination: Blue Star. At the nexus of a thriving studio-restaurant-residential-gallery complex blocks from the King William historical district, this non-collecting museum is now helmed by executive director Mary Heathcott, who has revamped the exhibition programming with the assistance of colleague Jacqueline McGilvray. Scroll through these images for a peek at the curatorial acumen of Heathcott and McGilvray, who have organized Blue Star’s cavernous warehouse spaces into a series of thoughtful exhibitions — produced by last year’s Open Call — which now intriguingly fill four museum galleries (all through August 9).
