While some may claim that 2022 has been a literal parade of never-ending shit shows, when it comes to the arts, the team at BmoreArt heartily disagrees. In Baltimore and surrounding areas, we have experienced a deluge of gleaming, magnificent, achingly good art in 2022. Often, there’s so much that we cannot cover it all, but whenever possible, we recognize the value of these artistic achievements–in our stories, print journals, photo essays, calendar, social media, and events.
Baltimore’s museums, galleries, colleges, artist-run spaces, and universities consistently supply us with exhibitions that challenge our intellect, influence our emotions, and encourage us to participate in creative production. Thankfully for all of us, this trajectory bears no indication that it will change in 2023 and we want to refine our focus on Baltimore, but also continue to expand our coverage to include more Washington, DC-based artists, museums, and exhibits in 2023.
For all those who work in the arts–the curators, preparators, conservators, museum guards, and especially those who fund these projects and artists directly–we thank you for your commitment to excellence and for making Baltimore a rich and inspiring place to live and work.
We want to extend a special thank you to all those who have contributed to BmoreArt as writers, critics, photographers, designers, team members, advertisers, subscribers, and patrons in 2022 for not only recognizing and supporting artistic achievements of all kinds, but in actively BUILDING an inclusive, diverse, rich, and authentic Art History for future generations! What we are doing requires a vast team of dedicated individuals and ongoing support.
