CIRCA Presents: Cara Ober
Baltimore cultural organizer and artist Cara Ober
The Center for Innovation, Research and Creativity in the Arts (CIRCA) is pleased to present Baltimore-based writer, cultural organizer, and artist Cara Ober, who will speak about her experiences as founding editor of BMoreArt, Baltimore's celebrated online art magazine and print journal. Ober's writing in the form of critical reviews, essays, and opinion editorials have explored the political and economic impact of the arts in Baltimore and the way artists maintain a professional practice and thrive in a city full of rich and diverse cultural traditions as well as deep and troubling social issues. As the founding editor of BmoreArt, Ober has spent a decade building a local, national, and international audience for arts and culture produced in Baltimore. Named "Best of Baltimore" by Baltimore Magazine in 2017 and 2014, BmoreArt questions and analyzes issues of gender, race, social justice, and cultural institutions with emphasis on artist-centric issues of material and process and how they influence content and artistic output.
