Help support A Contemporary Centennial: Representation Today! This project series commemorates the 100th anniversary of Women’s Right to Vote and exemplifies The Delaware Contemporary’s role in the region to celebrate the strides that have been made over the last century while igniting civic dialogue on the continued struggles American women face today. Through the context of art by contemporary artists, this project series explores the lasting impact made by the past significant milestones in the suffrage movement and the continued fight for gender equality in the present day with three main components: Public Art Initiative, Major Suffrage Centennial Event, and Contextual Workshops and Exhibitions.
About The Delaware Contemporary
Mission: The Delaware Contemporary is an art space that infuses contemporary art and creativity into our community through compelling exhibitions, dynamic educational experiences, and access to the artistic process.
Founded in 1979 by a small volunteer group of artists and arts patrons, The Delaware Contemporary made its focus the promotion of growth and understanding of the contemporary arts in Delaware. The Delaware Contemporary, a non-collecting museum, currently presents over 24 exhibitions annually of regionally, nationally, and internationally recognized artists. In addition to the exhibitions, the museum commits to educational and community outreach through various programs, such as Artist Residencies with underserved community groups and Contemporary Connections, a model program that fuses art with schools’ core curriculums, offering fresh new ways to teach subjects such as math and science. The Delaware Contemporary has partnered in some way with more than 60 community groups and schools.
