Throughout the world, contemporary art popularity is on the rise. This is no less so here at The Delaware Contemporary where thanks to our successful exhibitions, educational programs, Art Loop nights, and special events, attendance at the museum has smashed old records! The excitement in discovering a new artist or experiencing first-hand visual storytelling is contagious. Here is how important your support is to our mission: As a non-collecting museum, we present an ever-changing array of contemporary art. Each year we present between exhibitions at our state-of-the-art facility along Riverfront Wilmington that feature emerging and established artists making a mark in the art world. We engage our community by offering art experiences to schools, churches, and community groups. With your philanthropic support, we offer over 15 educational programs and workshops that are often the only art exposure these students receive. The work they produce is vibrant and exciting and helps instill a love of the arts. we strive to expand the work we do with students and teachers, both on-site and with community partners throughout the city. With your help, we are making investments in new visual capabilities that will allow us to keep pace with art and digital media, as well as enhancing lectures and meetings. With the generous support from our philanthropic partner, the Longwood Foundation, we installed a new media wall that has completely transformed our old “black box” auditorium into a new kind of “connected” gathering place for artistic expression. Come check it out! Please make a gift to our annual fund today and support our efforts to bring you innovative art, educational programs, and new experiences in contemporary visual media. We look forward to seeing you soon!
