Executive Director, Andy Benavides has been selected as Artist honoree alongside S.M.A.R.T. as
Arts Education Champion for this year's Red Dot art sale. This is the first time in Blue Star's 32 year history that an artist has been honored not only for their art but recognized for the impact their art makes on building a community. This is a historic moment for all artists. Additionally, S.M.A.R.T. will receive a portion of the proceeds from the sales of Andy's art work! Thank you Blue Star Contemporary.
This is an extreme honor for us. We are truly humbled.

End of Year Fun
Briscoe Bears: One Big Heart
Ms. Cari Richter from Briscoe Elementary called us on a Friday, " Hey, I have an idea. I want to make a heart with the entire school - on Monday." Perfect! We love fire drills! What you see here is the result of 450 hearts working together to make one. Because, after all, isn't this what we should all be doing?
Fifth Grade end of year field trip!
This year S.M.A.R.T. took our Briscoe Elementary 5th grade classes on an end of year urban art field trip. A first for us and them! We all had SO much fun that this will be an annual end of year event. With a quick bus ride to downtown we engaged with Centro's public art experience, headed over to Hopscotch for an immersive mural experience and ended with a behind the scenes tour of the Tobin Performing Arts Center! Thank you to artist Rudy M. Herrera, Centro, Hopscotch and the Tobin for your support! See you next year!
