The Grand Galleries are a great opportunity for area artists to gain more exposure as well as offer enrichment and enjoyment to patrons, performing artists, artistic partners and staff.
The Grand is actively seeking artists to exhibit their work during the coming year. Along with the opportunity to show for the month, artists will also take part in the City of Wilmington's Art on the Town, also known as the "Art Loop" on first Fridays.

Traveling Peace Youth Artwork Exhibit
What is your vision of a peaceful world? What does peace mean to you? Over 500 students from 28 local schools and community organizations answered those questions by submitting inspiring artwork and descriptions for the Pacem in Terris 3rd Annual Visionary Peace Youth Art Exhibition at The Delaware Contemporary during Peace Week Delaware.
The Traveling Peace artwork showcases a diverse selection of the beautiful, original, and inspiring visions and works of peace from the larger annual exhibition. The collection highlights young artists, between 5-18 years old, from public, private, and charter schools along with community groups. Those organizations included this year have grown to include: Cab Calloway, Campus Community School, Claymont Elementary, Concord High School, Delaware Korean School, First Unitarian Church, First State Montessori Academy, Glasgow High School, Hindu Temple of Delaware, YWCA Homelife, Kuumba Academy, Newark High School, Springer Middle School, Sycamore Hill, Summer in the Parks, Tarbiyah School, Ujima After School, Urban Promise, William Henry School, Wilmington Montessori School, Gateway School, Jewish Community Center, Mt. Pleasant High School, Newark Charter, Salesianum, and Tatnall School.
We are grateful to the art teachers, volunteers, generous sponsors, donors, and the selection committee for their support. The Pacem in Terris Traveling Peace Art Exhibition fosters dialogue between and among youth and adults about their visions of peace. Responses to these visionary statements for a desired world can be as varied as “Can you tell me more about this? What does this mean to you? How can we make this real?” Three additional collections of Traveling Peace youth artwork are concurrently exhibited at galleries across the state between November 2018-April 2019. For details, please see the Pacem in Terris website and Visionary Peace Youth Art Facebook page.
This exhibition is supported, in part, by grants from the Longwood Foundation, the Wilmington Flower Market, and the Delaware Division of the Arts. DDOA is a state agency, in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts. The Division promotes Delaware arts events on DelawareScene.com.
