Magazine Launch Parties

Our biannual release parties celebrate the accomplishments of the artists featured in our print journals and an opportunity to come together as a creative community in Baltimore’s most iconic locations. Hosted each spring and fall, BmoreArt’s biannual magazine release parties attract 450+ guests and each location is selected based on the theme of the publication. Past parties include the Engineer’s Club (Beauty Issue), The Walters Art Museum (Legacy Issue), and the Pratt Library Central Branch (Archive Issue).

General tickets are $25 and available via our website. The event includes food, cocktails, and a copy of our newest issue. All proceeds go directly to the production of our next print issue and support independent journalism in Baltimore.

Our next launch party will be scheduled in early May, 2020 for Issue 09: Craft. Please stay tuned for the announcement of a date and location very soon!

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.
