Thanks to the ongoing support of The Delaware Contemporary's institutional sponsors, audiences can engage with contemporary art through outstanding exhibitions and vital educational programs for communities throughout our region. Institutional gifts support a broad range of initiatives from special events sponsorships, to educational programs for adults and children, to offering contemporary artists opportunities for growth and exposure. 

The Delaware Contemporary is pleased to highlight some of the longstanding institutional partnerships that have made our programs a success.
