What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Major Exhibitions

The Delaware Art Museum regularly presents exhibitions assembled from its permanent collection, offering the community an opportunity to become familiar with a wide variety of artists and artistic movements.  On average, 10 to 12 exhibitions are presented annually.

Population(s) Served

The Delaware Art Museum offers a bevy of programs for various audiences.  For families, the Museum provides make and take art projects, family days, a pre-K storyreading program, homeschool tours, and self-guide activity sheets for use in the galleries.  Student and teacher audiences are presented with tour themes making interdisciplinary connections and professional development opportunities that inform educators on how to use the Museum as a resource in the classroom.  A unique feature to the Museum is the Bank of America Education Wing, which includes studios for ceramics, metalsmithing, painting and drawing.  Classes for youth and adults are offered throughout the year, ranging from one or two day workshops to 10 week courses across a wide array of artistic mediums.  In addition to the Museum’s regular schedule of public tours and exhibition-related programs, the Education department also coordinates outreach programs for audiences that are unable to visit the Museum due to transportation limitations.  The majority of these outreach programs are targeted to youth and are presented at libraries and schools.

Population(s) Served

The Red Apple Fund for Student Enrichment provides funds for increased access to the Delaware Art Museum’s programs and activities for children and youth (pre-K through grade 12) whose lack of sufficient finances would otherwise prevent their participation. Through the Red Apple Fund, qualified individuals and groups—including school groups, homeschool students, children, youth, and community groups—are awarded scholarships to subsidize program fees, admission fees, and transportation costs associated with a range of educational offerings. Historically, the cost of bus transportation is one of the most significant obstacles to group participation and organizations can apply to have the Museum subsidize that cost, as well as the cost of the programs themselves.

Population(s) Served

Professional conservation, monitoring, and treatment of works of art in the Museum’s collection.

Population(s) Served

The Museum’s Outlooks Exhibition Series invites proposals for exhibitions that have been created by residents and organizations of the surrounding area for display in the Museum.
