About City Arts

City Arts is a platform for arts and culture in the Puget Sound. We publish the glossy monthly magazine City Arts and we produce a variety of music and arts events, including the Art Walk Awards and Genre Bender.

Every month, City Arts magazine digs deep into Seattle's creative community, catching up with artists and visiting stages and studios all over town to give our readers an authoritative understanding of the arts and culture that shape our region. Inspired by the intersections of our region’s music and arts scenes, we seek out collaboration and innovation, shining a light on the people behind music, dance, theatre, comedy, film, visual art, food, fashion and literature.

Founded in Tacoma in 2006, City Arts is operated by Encore Media Group, a family-owned, Northwest-based publishing company that has produced 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. Pick up your copy today subscribe and get the magazine delivered straight to your door each month.
