We loved visiting this area! If you are in San Antonio, this complex is a must see for independent artists!

Blusestar is great to have in SA but it often features too much local culture at the expense of the rest of the world in the art it exhibits. Room for improivement and open mindedness.

Maybe this is a place that is only "open" to the public during certain events???? We went on a Saturday afternoon and there were maybe three "art galleries" open. The first was preparing for a "runway show"... but we were obviously not cool enough to be told when or what or why. Pretty much ignored after that comment. The second... More

Used to be a great spot for emerging arts; now it's gentrified to point that there are very few galleries/studios but rather brew pubs, juice bars and food spots. We stopped in on a Saturday. One space, Cinnabar, was open; everything that was arts space was closed. New condos went up. Now it's more of a pub spot with some... More

I love this place. There's always something interesting going on here! Went to a Mystic Festival last month on a Sunday that had all sorts of different vendors. Good food, drink and art, what more could you ask for?!!

Look at Blue Star Arts Complex website. They have a cool map of the venues in the complex. My favorite is San Angel Folk Art store. He buys beautiful things from Mexico and Latin America. Lots of bars within the complex. Check out their website and YouTube videos. BSAC is easy to access on VIA street car or double-decker bus... More

I love this place! The entire complex is wonderful. The people are extremely nice and the Brick is such a treat to visit on Sundays with all the artists. They have a parking lot so no need to try to find on street parking, a huge plus for the area.

So it's well hidden if your not familiar with the area but still in a nice safe area. I used my travel guide from my hotel to find things to do since I'm only here traveling and the book said it was free on the day I went but when I got there the guy working the front desk said... More
