Calling all artists: The Delaware Contemporary is hosting two new 6x6 events

Sep 6, 2017

The Delaware Contemporary in Wilmington is hosting two 6-by-6 events this fall, featuring artwork from artists of all ages and stages in their creative evolution.


The Delaware Contemporary will tap into community talent during those two events.


Delaware Fun-A-Day is a community-centric art project that signs people up to create a different piece of artwork each day on different themes.  The results will be featured at an exhibition October 6-8 at The Delaware Contemporary.


That’s followed by the Saba III fundraiser November 11.  That event will auction off small works of art donated by emerging, mid-career and seasoned artists, as well as students and local celebrities.

"It's a great opportunity to view artwork from all - a wide-variety of artists. It's more of a community-angled event with less of a focus on established-career art," said Tatiana Michels, Marketing Manager at The Delaware Contemporary. "So, it's fun for people to come and see the variety of what people in Delaware are producing from a creative standpoint."



The Delaware Contemporary is closed on Mondays; Tuesday and Sunday hours are noon to 5 p.m.; Wednesdays it’s open noon to 7 p.m. and Thursday’s, Fridays and Saturdays The Delaware Contemporary is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. It is wheelchair accessible; visitors with special needs are asked to call in advance.
