Issue 12 features maximalist, exuberant, over-the-top artists, projects, and thinkers. Released in November, 2021, the "More is More" issue features artist Mina Cheon, BMA chief curator Asma Naeem, Carla Du Pree, a champion for Baltimore’s literary community, and MacArthur-winning conductor Marin Alsop, the subject of a documentary by Johns Hopkins University film professor Bernadette Wegenstein. Issue 12 features individuals and organizations literally cultivating the green spaces that sustain us, with a profile on Strength to Love II Farm, as well as a deep dive into Baltimore’s community of rare plant cultivators. It examines over-the-top and immersive art projects like Eduardo Corral’s massive, multi-sensory exhibition at the ICA Baltimore, Piotr Szyhalski’s Labor Camp poster series (now installed en masse outside of Good Neighbor), as well as Baltimore’s beloved Creative Alliance at age 26, and a number of artists and individuals whose “more is more” attitude enlivens, encourages, and challenges the status quo, demanding that we envision a bold future.
