THE STUDIOS @ The Delaware Contemporary
Our philosophy is rooted in a sense of community where proactivity, public engagement, diversity of ideas, perspectives, and artistic practice are honored, respected, and achieved. Our 26 mixed-use studio spaces of galleries, artist studios, and art incubators, are accessible to the public by appointment and during extended hours on first Friday Art Loops - open studios on Art Loop tend to be a big draw for attendees!
Applications are now closed. Check back for the next application opening to join the creative community of The Studios @ The Delaware Contemporary!

"We move through rooms unseeing; doorways bring light which transforms the ordinary into a chamber of memory or desired sensation."
