The power of art to bring connection, comfort, joy, and inspiration has never been more important! We are excited to join our community of Delaware nonprofits for this annual collaborative effort to celebrate philanthropy in Delaware.

Funds raised will support our exhibition programming offering new and innovative ways to engage with contemporary art! Fall 2022 features the medium of GLASS and will introduce the Corning Museum Mobile Hot Shop to the Wilmington Riverfront.

As we progress through 2022, we strive to:
  • Support and invest in individuals at the cutting edge of their fields, whose work impacts the cultural landscape at large.
  • Encourage hundreds of artists to explore their ideas and work within the context of the MidAtlantic region.
  • Bring a community of artists to the MidAtlantic region and create opportunities for engagement and cross-cultural exchange with audiences.
