Magazine Release Parties

Our biannual release parties are designed to celebrate the accomplishments of the artists featured in our print journals and are an opportunity to come together as a creative community in Baltimore’s most iconic locations. Hosted each spring and fall since 2015, BmoreArt’s magazine release events attracted 500+ guests with each location based on the theme of the publication. Past parties include the Engineer’s Club (Beauty Issue), The Walters Art Museum (Legacy Issue), The Parkway Theatre (Body Issue) and the Pratt Library Central Branch (Archive Issue).

Pre-pandemic, we offered general tickets for about 500 guests for an event including food, cocktails, and a copy of our newest issue. These events were community celebrations and a fundraiser, with proceeds going directly to the production of our next print issue. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, we were not able to host magazine release parties for Issues 09 and 10, and we started a new Subscription Service in 2020 to make up for lost revenue.

The good news: We are now able to offer private release events with tickets reserved for those who have SUBSCRIBED at the Artist Level ($100 a year) or above. Head to our subscriptions page to consider our membership plans and options if you want to join us for the next magazine release event!


Release party at Current for Issue 12: More is More in November 2021


The BmoreArt Journal of Art + Ideas launched its first print edition in November, 2015. To celebrate the new publication, we hosted a party at Maryland Art Place on November 17, 2015. The ticketed event was sold-out with 300+ attendees! It was generously sponsored by the Robert W. Deutsch Foundation, Pixilated, Union Craft Brewing, BOPA, and Maryland Art Place.

That night we danced to the tunes of DJ Ellen Degenerate, ate homemade tacos by our Not So Starving Artist food critic Katie Boyts, clapped our hands for Baltimore’s newest print journal, and distributed 500+ copies of the magazine. It was the beginning of a new era and vision at the publication, and for each subsequent thematic issue, we have hosted large celebrations for those in the publication as well as those who support it, at Baltimore’s most iconic venues.
