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 artists, The Delaware Contemporary presents exhibitions of regionally, nationally, and internationally recognized artists that explore topical issues in contemporary art and society.
The Delaware Contemporary (TDC) established an artist-in-residence program in 1992 to bring Delaware communities together with contemporary artists. Unlike the artist-in-residence program which was designed for established artists, the redesigned Residency Program extends the residency opportunity to all types and forms of creative producers, and significantly increases the duration of the residency from one-two months to a full year/twelve-month residency. The twelve-month residency will allow the residents to fully engage with the community and to produce a comprehensive body of work for exhibition and documentation. In support of the museum’s ongoing efforts to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in our community as well as in our organization, TDC has placed emphasis on providing the Residency Program to Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC). TDC is driven to provide equitable access to career development and capacity building opportunities for underserved populations and strives to contribute to diversifying the nonprofit and museum industries through our redesigned Residency Program.
