The Blue Genie Art Bazaar is a creation of the principles at Blue Genie Art Industries; Chris Coakley, Kevin Collins, Rory Skagen and Dana Younger. Founded in 2001, it was originally held at the Blue Genie Art facility in east Austin. The show has grown every year while continuing to gain recognition for supporting the local art community and Austin-based small business. This beloved local holiday event now takes place at a refurbished warehouse at 6100 Airport Blvd. in Austin featuring the hand-made work of more than 200 regional artisans.
