Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum
February 1 - May 7, 2018
Common Currents features works by 300 artists across six San Antonio venues: Artpace San Antonio, Blue Star Contemporary Arts, the Carver Community Cultural Center, the Guadalupe Cultural Arts Center, the Mexican Cultural Institute, and the Southwest School of Art. The exhibition is organized around the theme of the city's Tricentennial (1718-2018): each of the 300 artists is assigned a year in San Antonio's history "on which to reflect the development of their artwork." For a full list of participating artists, go here.
