Blue Star's 2013 Gala Benefit


Join us as we go "Back to the Future" at this year's annual Gala Benefit supporting Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum! This special evening will be a fantastic opportunity to recognize Bernard Lifshutz, one of the founding supporters of Blue Star Contemporary. His legacy in the arts community and his other notable contributions to Southtown culture will be remembered and revered.


Since opening in 1986, the exhibitions and programs at Blue Star Contemporary have grown tremendously. The benefit will celebrate the museum's glorious history and its bright future as the museum begins its twenty-eighth season of exhibitions. The evening will feature:


* Back To The Future theme honoring Bernard Lifshutz
* Select group of artwork available for purchase
* Artist Adela Andea's sculptural installation Primordial Garden, 2013
* Totally 80's Music Afterparty with special guest DJ appearance by Steven Evans of Blue Star Contemporary
