Inspired by the intersections of our region’s music and arts scenes, the magazine seeks out collaboration and innovation, and shines a light on the people behind music, dance, theatre, comedy, film, visual art, food, fashion and literature to give readers a bird’s-eye view of what is hip and happenin’.
There are stories from all corners of the creative community. The publication helps you know and understand the creative character of this corner of the Pacific Northwest, to figure out the fundamental ethos, to chase down the cutting edge, and hold the zeitgeist in your hands.
Each issue of City Arts covers a diverse and unpredictable mix of arts and culture in the Northwest. Each edition (Seattle, Tacoma, and Eastside) of City Arts delivers compelling, topical content specific to its area, building community, commerce and connections. In aggregate, the three editions of City Arts serve the Puget Sound region with content to advance the region’s ambitions as a growing center of arts, culture, and creativity.
Best of all, City Arts magazine is distributed for free. Find a copy in newspaper boxes on the street, concert venues, libraries, coffee shops, art galleries, independent bookstores, and locally-owned businesses in Seattle, Tacoma, and surrounding cities on the north, south, eastside, and Bainbridge Island.
You can also subscribe, and for just $36 a year they’ll mail each issue straight to your mailbox.
