City Arts is a platform for arts and culture in the Puget Sound. We publish City Arts, a glossy monthly magazine, and we produce a variety of music and arts events, including the Art Walk Awards.
Every month, City Arts magazine goes for a colorful, glossy romp inside our community, catching up with artists-in-process, visiting stages and studios all over town to give our readers a bird's-eye view of what our region’s up to. We quest to understand the creative character of this place, to figure out our fundamental ethos, to chase down the cutting edge and hold the zeitgeist in our hands.
Inspired by the overlaps and intersections of our region’s many music and arts scenes, we aim to feed cross-pollination and shake things up a bit. That’s why we unearth stories from all corners of the creative community, shining a light on the people and work behind music and dance, theatre and comedy, film and visual art, lifestyle and literature.
Founded in Tacoma in 2006, City Arts is owned and operated by Encore Media Group, a family-owned, Northwest-based publishing company that has been producing arts programs, travel guides and custom projects for more than 40 years. City Arts magazine is distributed for free in newspaper boxes and businesses throughout the Puget Sound region.
