Our Story

BmoreArt is an independent, Baltimore-based magazine that reflects the art and culture of our city and the surrounding region, including Maryland, Washington, DC, and Northern Virginia. We provide creative and critical coverage of the cultural landscape and work with a diverse team of local writers, editors, and artists.

Our thematic print journal is released twice a year in fall and spring, and our online site is updated daily. To encourage participation and inclusion in the region, BmoreArt publishes a weekly event “Picks” post every Tuesday, a curated list of the best upcoming exhibits and events. The site also includes a calendar of cultural events, a gallery and resource guide, a weekly e-newsletter, and opportunities to participate, share, and comment. In addition to our online and print publications, we engage through social media and events, including magazine launch parties in Baltimore’s most iconic locations and speaker series for artists, collectors, and arts professionals. 

BmoreArt was founded by Cara Ober in 2007 as a collaborative blog run by artists for artists. Over the past decade, BmoreArt expanded and evolved into a full-time staff of four and a team of part-time and freelance contributors, but the goals and commitment to rigorous dialogue have remained consistent. We believe that Baltimore’s culture producers and creative makers deserve to be discussed, critiqued, and supported. Our mission is to build awareness, equity, and community through critical discourse about art and culture. Through our content and our events, BmoreArt builds authentic relationships with a growing audience, creates connections between individuals and communities, and encourages participation and patronage of the arts and culture in Baltimore.
