There are art exhibits that mostly feature local artists. That's great as the major art museums of the city cover more established artists from the U.S. And the rest of the world. This area is also home to a number of excellent restaurants and bars....More

Hello! I apologize for the delay in response; we only recently claimed our business page. I am a little confused about your review, as it seems to be mostly for the other businesses in the Blue Star Arts Complex (and the Complex itself) (www.bluestarartscomplex.com), and...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?!!

We loved walking around the whole Blue Star area and see all the artist's work. We stopped in the coffee shop and there was a lot happening in there. The river walk is amazing and we enjoyed checking out the neighborhood.
