BSC says its staff will maintain frequent cleaning and disinfecting procedures, wear face coverings, and complete temperature checks.
States Mary Heathcott, Executive Director of Blue Star Contemporary: “Blue Star Contemporary is looking forward to welcoming back our community and inspiring visitors through contemporary art. Our new visiting procedures are in place out of care for our artists, audiences, and staff so that we may continue to share our exhibitions with you in person.
